Bar end shifters - 2x6, 2x7, or 2x8

I'm building a touring bike from a Miyata TripleCross frame with a Suntour Sprint groupset. It's looking amazing and the only thing it's missing is bar end shifters. If you have 2x6, 2x7, or 2x8 bar end shifters that you're willing to sell, please let me know!

Thank you

I have a set of Suntour Barcons. Purchased as NOS. These were mounted on a bike for a day. They did not suit the particular build and were taken off. Includes the original unused cables and spring cable housing. Asking $95.00. I will cover shipping.

It can be a little tough indexing with suntour. It can be done but it is not as straightforward as with shimano. I have three suggestions.

First, consider friction. A good friction bar end works remarkably well and suntour made a great one.

Second, put up a WTB in the C&V forum. Plenty of folks sell them there and they tend to go for $40-$50 (these will be used obviously not NOS and NOS tends to command a premium over used for obvious reasons).

Third, you can buy racheting bar ends new. Dia compe makes them and they are very good. https://www.ebay.com/itm/36301337506...AaAmgBEALw_wcB
