Gear Shifter Sets
There are many different shifters in today’s bike world, and you can find them all in this category. Drop bar ‘brifters’ for your road and gravel bike combine the brake lever and the shifter. SRAM, Shimano and Campagnolo all make brifters, with each brand offering a different feel and mechanism. Flat-bar shifters are also in this category, mostly known as ‘thumb’ or ‘trigger’ shifters. These are operated with thumb and forefinger, and many will come with a small gear indicator to see what gear you are in. Finally, this category has triathlon shifters that fit on the end of triathlon extension bars to reduce drag. These shifters can be a mechanical lever, but as electronic shifting becomes more popular, they can also be ‘buttons’ where you can change gear with just one finger.
