Moving my shifters.

Where do you get a GOOD shifter holder to fit a stem? Or top tube.

I am thinking about taking off my bar end shifters and moving to "tube" shifters.
Take a set of down tube shifters and place them on the top tube.

FYI: I am having trouble getting a set of 'take offs' from Kelly so I have not tried that approach
AND, I want to dump my drop bar and stick with click/friction shifters(exp -Shamino 600)

Why not just get a set of stem shifters -- There are Shimano SIS index ones and many friction models (including Suntour ratcheting) available cheap. I bet if you asked there is a BF member who might send you one for free or for the cost of postage. Heck I would be willing to send you a set for postage.

How many speeds is your rear cluster?
