Set both up for friction shift...NOW we're talking!
If you're riding an 8 speed, you're probably NOT a Tour de France wannabe. You want a set of shifters that don't break the bank, won't break and leave you stranded out in the toolies, and are an extreme joy to use, these are your shifters. Indexing?....WHAT is the POINT, especially with a front derailleur? Set these up the way God intended, in friction shift mode, and enjoy riding the way we ALWAYS rode, until the marketing driven racing wannabe stuff took over in the 90's...Oh, very well...you can set up the rear indexed, if you like. But at least TRY the front derailleur in friction shift mode...you WON'T go back!
