Bar End Shifters and IGHs

Photo: Hiawatha Cyclery

Hiawatha Cyclery posted this cool idea of using a Shimano 8 speed bar end shifter with a Travel Agent brake adapter to operate a Shimano Alfine internal gear hub. Apparently the Travel Agent changes the amount of cable pull of the bar end shifter to match what is required for the IGH - cool...=-) Click here for more info.

Nah, they didn't come up with the idea. They saw it elsewhere and did a better job blogging it.

Regardless, it's a nice option to have. A Nexus-8 compatible downtube shifter would be my choice.

Please, Shimano?

Yeah, right.
