A stem-mounted shifter for Shimano Atlas
I have a Fuji Helion R. Its got a 8 speed shifter but I want to find a stem or top tube mounted shifter (classic style). What do I need to know before I order the new shifter? The existing shifter is the ugliest thing on my bike right now.

Altus? not Atlas?

I don't know that Shimano made an indexed stem shifter beyond 6 or 7 speed.

Your other option is to find a mount that will fit whatever shifters you need as well as your top tube diameter and pick up some 8 speed downtube shifters.

Wait, what does it have now, an integrated shifter/brake, correct? Shimano STI "brifter"?
That's what I see in images, anyway. What's the issue with the appearance of the current shifter?

Atlas... at the moment. No issue with existing. I hate the look of it. It does not match the aesthetics of the bike. Will post a few pictures tomorrow.

Shimano doesn't make a product called "Atlas".
Fuji shows Altus shifters and RD.
