SHIFTMATE #2- This little device will convert 10 speed STI of various brands (Shimano etc) to work with 9 speed clusters of the same or different combinations of brands (see link for explanation) - part of an unfinished product that has run out of steam! never used, comes with complete instructions-
Price is $20 - can arrange a meet up or will post with exact postage cost- under $10 my guess
Yes Jason I stil have it- just have to work out getting it to you- where r you- Iam in KIAMA- it is only a small thing
Ok- I can go to the PO tomorrow arvo and get a postage price sending to Pacific Pines- will then get bac to you with the cost and bank a/c details- OK?
Ah the shiftmate , I first came across this when researching a way to use ergo levers with shimano drive train , aka shimergo
I was lucky that my preferred shifter of choice : Campy Ergo 11 speed was a natural marriage with Shimano 9 speed RD (and that in turn allows me to swap in either Campy or Shimano 9 speed wheels) which I've done on 2 of my bikes.
But, back to the shiftmate, for those who want to know more : here's a cut and past direct from their website
For mixing speeds & shifters
|Shifter||Derailleur||Cassette type & speed||Pulley groove size that cable enters|
|Shimano 9 speed||Shimano road to 10, MTN to 9 speed||Shimano 8 speed - only 8 available gears||Small|
|Shimano 9 speed||Campagnolo||Campagnolo 10 speed||Small|
|Shimano 9 speed||Shimano road to 10, MTN to 9 speed||Shimano 10 speed - only 9 available gears||Large|
|Shimano 10 speed road||Shimano road to 10, MTN to 9 speed||Shimano 9 Speed||Small|
|2001 & newer Campagnolo 9 speed||Shimano road to 10, MTN to 9 speed||Shimano 8 speed||Large|
|2001 & newer Campagnolo 9 speed||Campagnolo||Campagnolo 10 speed - only 9 available gears||Large|
|Campagnolo 10 speed||Shimano road to 10, MTN to 9 speed||Shimano 9 speed||Large|
|Campagnolo 10 speed||Campagnolo||Campagnolo 9 speed||Small|
|Campagnolo 10 speed||Campagnolo||Shimano / SRAM / Campagnolo 11 speed - only 10 available gears||Large|
|Campagnolo 11 speed||Campagnolo||Campagnolo 10 speed||Small|
I guess this is especially so with 11 speeds across all 3 big brands being effectively unified.
Jason has taken it - cheers
Yeah I figured that out.
He had a great deal on a great item.
