Microshift Flat Bar Shifters

MicroShift Flat Bar Shifters

MicroShift Flat Bar Shifters are just what the minimalist ordered! These low-profile thumb shifters are perfect for everything from your retro-inspired townie build to a bikepacking rig built to withstand the apocalypse. Simple operation and a classy, straightforward aesthetic are matched with efficient performance and the versatility of switching between friction or indexed shifting (for the rear shifter). The front shifter operates in a micro friction mode that works with both double and triple cranks. The rear shifter is dealers choice. Run it in friction for that classic feel or switch it into indexed for a precise modern shifting experience. Though these shifters are designed to work with modern 9 or 10 speed indexed drivetrains, setting them up in the friction only mode allows you to pair them with up 5-8 speed drivetrains as well.

Features:

  • Front Shifter: 2/3 speed micro-friction
  • Rear Shifter: 9/10 speed indexed (select model in dropdown) or friction
  • Bar clamp diameter: 22.2mm
  • Clamp material: Aluminum cold forged / anodized
  • Lever material: Aluminum cold forged / anodized
  • Please note: Not compatible with 10 speed Shimano MTB components with Dyna-Sys cable pull.
  • Claimed weight: 110g

Microshift Flat Bar Shifters 9-Speed
Jenson USA is great! I submitted a price match for this item, not really expecting to get it, but they did. The shipping was fast - I got my item in about half the time that they guaranteed I would. and communication is great! I don't buy a lot of new parts, but when I do, Jenson USA is the first place I look now because of their outstanding customer service! Thank you so much!

It's a great concept
There's an old saying in cycling: 'Light, strong, cheap - pick two.' Top mount thumb shifters are the rare case where you get all three. They weigh less than trigger shifters, cost less, and are more durable and serviceable (especially out in the field). For commuters and winter/fat bikes, they are ideal, since they can be operated with thick gloves or mittens. If the shifting gets sloppy mid-ride, switch them over to friction mode. Sometimes the simplest option is the best option, and top mount thumb shifters are the simplest option.

ok, this is trick
when my daughter built her first go-fast bike last summer from a older Team Fuji frame, I went with Microshift bar ends, custom cassette and 9-speed Ultegra. They work flawlessly. On my new cross frame upright, I built my first index-shifting bike, with compact double, and only thumbies made sense. So I went with reliable Microshift and the Microshift R10 RD. Delighted with the look and function of this setup. I found the sweet spot on the shifters is about an inch away from the brake levers. Happy to find them in stock at Jensen, and they really hustle to ship.

A great product
I boughtt these to use in a Milan GT velomobile I was building. I have previously used DurAce bar ends on Paul's Thumbies to achieve the same design goal. These are lighter, look better, and perform better than the Shimano. Specifically, Shimano tech reps state that the DurAce are not designed to work with their MTB rear DR; they will but indexing is slightly off in the center. The Microshift indexing is spot on all across the range. The plastic covering on the handles of the Shimano bar ends gets yukky after a few years. So far, after a solid season (3,000 miles) of riding, the Microshift look like new. Finally, they are cheaper than the Shimano/paul's combo. What more could you want?

Great gear, but...
This is my second set of Microshift flat bar shifters. I have them mounted in my two velomobiles, replacing Shimano bar ends. They work almost perfectly, except that the pull of the front shifter is only about 2/3 of that of the Shimano. Thus, if you have a triple chainring setup, there may not be enough cable pull to hit all three rings. One set works perfectly, the other, mounted with a Schlumpf Mountain Drive, does not--I had to revert to the Shimano.

simple is good
high quality part. I used these to up grade my wifes bike from 7s to 9s when her rapidfire shifters went south. they went on and adjust easy. the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is you need a hex key to switch from index to friction. unlike my old XT that have a switch on the side. gota love the front shifting.

Will these work with ultegra front derailleur triple and ultegra rear derailleur 10 speed?
Taylor on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i am using these with Ultegra 10 speed rear so I know they work with that. According to specs they SHOULD work with ultegra triple front but I am using with double front so I can't say for sure.
Will these work with SRAM front and rear derailleurs? More specifically X7 and X9, respectively.
Austin H on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, these are Shimano, 8/9spd and Road 10spd compatible only. Not compatible with SRAM or Shimano 10 Speed MTB derailleurs.
Will the Microsoft SL-M10 shifters work with Shimano DynaSys 10-speed derailleurs in index mode? I've set them up with an old XT 8-speed derailleur and indexing is way off. Same with a newer Deore 9-speed unit. Compatibility of these with various Shimano parts is far from clear.
Birky on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 10 speed version of these shifters are designed to work in index mode with Shimano 10 speed road and non-Dynasys derailleurs only, such as Shimano 105 5700 or Ultegra 6700. In order to use these effectively in index mode, make sure to pair them with a Shimano 10 speed derailleur with a shift ratio of 1:7. They will only work with your XT 8 speed or Deore 9 speed derailleur in friction mode.

Dynasys uses a different ratio (1.2) and will not work with these shifters. The Dynasys compatible Microshift thumb shifters can be found here:
