Hi,

I'm looking for a pair of six speed indexed downtube shifters to fit braze ons. Standard indexing not some strange Suntour variant. Nothing too flashy.

Anybody got a pair they want to sell?

Cheers,

Gareth

I think Accushift are spaced at 5.5mm and Ultra at 5mm, or was it the other way round? Anyway standard spacing is 5.3mm. I have heard tell of people that are happy running mix and match between Suntour and other stuff, but I'd rather not take the risk unless I have to. I know that if you line everything up in the middle that things would only be half a millimetre out at either end, but even so...

Thanks anyway.

I ran Suntour Accushift with Shimano 6 speed freewheel for around 15,000 miles and never had an issue. This was standard spec on the Raleigh Record Sprint of 1990!
