I'm after a decent quality indexed 6-speed right hand shifter.

[Found] Karma'd from Antstark :)

A pair of Shimano SL-MT60 6 speed (with a 7th click should you be feeling fruity) for £17 GBP UK posted be any good to you?

It seems a bit of a waste to get a pair if anyone has a right-hand only, but if not I'll gladly take you up on the offer of MT60s.

Out of interest, how does the 7th click work, because aren't 6-speed and 7-speed differently spaced?

6spd is 5mm, 7 is 4.8mm - extra click covers the 7th perfectly. They are on my Saracen at the mo running 7spd.

I thought 6 speed was 5.5mm and 7 speed was 5.0mm. The shifter will actually be for a 5-speed, which I also thought was 5.5mm spacing, so I'd better make sure I've got it right.

Yes, these will work - am using them in a 7x3

As for 5spd - that will most likely be 5.5, shimano's 6spd is usually 5mm

Does this mean I can have them for my nasty new Grisley? (Shimano Acera combined levers so presumable I just remove shifters and keep levers?) :shock: Learning curve.

Ah, thanks for the info LGF. Go ahead if you want the nice MT60s History Man, I'll have to research further.
