        Comments about Shimano SL-BS64 8SPD Barend Shifters:

        Best shifter design... simple, easy to repair, solid feel. Use Shimano barends on all my bikes (2) 8-speed and (1) 9-speed.

        My bikes came with either Shimano STI or SRAM Double-Tap - replaced the shifters immediately with barends. Prefer simplicity and durability in barend shifters. For long days on the bicycle on rough roads it is imperative that my hands move from the brake levers to the barends to combat hand fatigue and numbness.

          I bought the bar end shifters to replace grip shifters on a terratrike. This was a great upgrade to the trike and greatly improved the shifting.

            These are outstanding shifters for up to 8 speeds. I installed them as an upgrade on my Univega Gran Touring. The kit is very complete, including adjustable stops/barrels where the downtube shifters used to be as well as cables and housings. Jensen's price made this purchase fantastic.

              wanted to go to road bars on a commuter bike and didn't have any braze on for down tube shift leavers. didn't think i would like bar end shifters, but i have to say after using them for almost a year i am sold. love it with a triple crank. shifts easily and no chain rub.

              Comments about Shimano SL-BS64 8SPD Barend Shifters:

              Absolutely HATED the 2300 shifters that came on my 2010 Jamis Satellite Sport. Ordered a pair of these, put 'em into a Nitto Randoneur handlebar.
              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!

              • Touring bike

              Comments about Shimano SL-BS64 8SPD Barend Shifters:

              Used these in combination with Tektro brake levers for V-brakes to convert Specialized Sirrus Hybrid (8-speed cassette) to Drop bars for touring. Indexing was a breeze to get working, but also works great in friction mode. I love having friction ability again for my front derailer; perfect alignment every time. Package came with all bits needed (lubed cables, housings, cable stops, cable end caps).

              • Road

              Comments about Shimano SL-BS64 8SPD Barend Shifters:

              Used these when I converted my hybrid with drop bars. Easy to install and SUPER easy to use. Many people tried to sway me away from these saying it was hard to shift, but for commuting, these were a breeze! The option to switch the right shifter from index to friction was also nice. My ONE complaint with these is when in a middle gear (and the shifter sticks straight out), sometimes when standing and pedaling my knee would brush against the shifter (not enough to shift gears though), so I had to keep that in mind.
