Bar end shifters and MTB RDs

23 Aug 2016 10:05

Hi all,

I'm almost certain the answer will be a very simple yes but thought I'd check. Are Shimano 10 speed bar end shifters compatible with Shimano 10 speed RDs? I think my MTB is going to become a MonsterCross bike but trying to decide if I want to run gears or not. If I do a bar end shifter will be the way I go.

Great thanks, I was planning on using Dia-Compe friction shifters if I need an MTB RD, probably shouldn't though.
