Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

nashbar shifters

https://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?sku=24354

anyone have comment on this one? description is rather poor, looks like shimano/campi/sram clone, but does it work reliably? can they really compete with campi centaur 10sp for almost the same $$$? in the other hand, it is compatible with almost everything, which is tempting.

cheers

on ebay you can get shimano Ultegra/DA shifters for about $150 with the cable housing. some are new in box or off of "new" bikes, either way i've never heard of someone replacing their shifters after 15k miles because of fagitue. the nashbar ones use to be 150 a couple months ago, guess they have gone down.

thank you all for your contribution,
it seems no one, or hardly anybody, has any real experience with these shifters; let's wait for someone who will have them used for a couple of 000's miles and see what they would say.
what i like about these shifters is the best of all concepts (campi/shimano/sram) - fixed brake lever and clean hood with designated up and down shift levers
the price is decent, it went down a bit, wish they offered decent spec
cheers

Made from cold forged aluminum, the Nashbar 10speed Dual Control Levers weigh in at a mere 406 grams a pair.
I didn't realize that was a potential problem. I can't remember ever braking when I tried to shift, or shifting when I tried to brake. Am I supposed to be having trouble with that?

There was a thread on these a little while back. A BF-er said he was going to buy some and test them. I've been awaiting the results.
