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
  • Claimed weight: 110g

      Comments about Microshift Flat Bar Shifters:

      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.

        Comments about Microshift Flat Bar Shifters:

        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.

        Comments about Microshift Flat Bar Shifters:

        I'm a major weight weenie and was looking at ways to cut some weight, as well as improve my shifting. I found both with the Microshift Thumb Shifters. Was originally looking at XTR and came across some Paul Thumbies. Was intrigued with the concept so I read reviews of several brands of thumb shifters and found that thumb shifters of any brand are highly rated. I also found that thumb shifters are considerably lighter than trigger shifters, the Microshift thumb shifters are advertised at 110 grams for the pair, mine arrived at 112 grams - about half the weight of XTR. They are very easy to install and also easy to adjust, and the indexing is spot on. The right shifter can also be set to friction, so it is not limited to use with 9-speed. I thought I was going miss not having indexing on the left shifter, but found that I actually prefer the ability to manually trim the friction shifter. There are a couple of minor negatives. One is that in a couple of positions, lever operation requires repositioning your hand on the grip to get your thumb or index finger in the right place. To be fair, I did not spend a lot of time locating the mounting position for the shifter and might have possibly found a more ergonomic position had I done so. The other minor negative is that I don't believe that there is a version for Sram rear derailleurs. Since I already have XTR, the Microshift is compatible with my current set up. However, For those who have Sram or might want to switch to Sram, I don't think there is a Microshift thumb shifter available for you. All-in-all, its simple design makes for a super light shifter that works very well.
