SL-7900 Shifters
I mounted these shifters on Retroshift levers for use on an otherwise all Campy Chorus 10-speed triple drivetrain and matched them using a J-tek Shiftmate. They replaced a worn set of Campy Ergo brifters at significantly lower cost.

Shifting is as fast and accurate as Ergos and the friction front shifting is much more versatile than even Campy multi-click front shifting.

PROS: Durable, Compatible, Easy to Use

CONS: None

BEST USES: Commuting, Serious Racing or Training, General Fitness Riding, Casual Riding

Ok!
I bought these for my surly cross check. I went to my LBS for installation. Works fine. Crisp shifting.

If you need a lot of shifting action, buy yourself handlebar shifters. I now live in a hilly city, and it's a pain to change speeds often.

PROS: Stylish, Stiff

CONS: Requires DT shifter adapt, Requires pro installation

Phenomenal shifters
I finally upgraded my retro, steel Italian bicycle with 10 speed indexing shifting. I previously had friction shifting that required a gentle, deft touch to get the correct gear. The most surprising thing for me is the quality of the FRONT shifter (which is still friction). It has a return spring which smooths out the shifting in the front. I always pause before paying Dura Ace prices but I never regret owning a Dura Ace piece of equipment. Would recommend these without reservation.

Does this shifter come with cover bosses? If so, are they flat or curved? My down tube is over sized. Thanks.
Joshua T on Aug 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It comes the the curved cover bosses that should fit a standard oversized downtube. I have it on several bikes with standard steel oversized downtubes and the fit is perfect.
is this product including cables?
Frank on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. I just added 2 extra cables for .89 cents each to the purchase order. They worked great.
Can these be used with the Paul Component Shimano Thumbies?
Michael L on Jun 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They're perfectly compatible.
