Hard to find thumb shifters for 6 speed as most are 7 and up,these have worked out great to replace the grip shift gears originally fitted to the bike and can be placed far enough out of the way so no more accidental gear changes when on rough terrain or bumping up and down kerbs,they've been so good I've ordered the 7 speed version for my girlfriends bike too as she commented how much better they are to use instead of the gripshift.

My grip shifters were completely worn out so I bought these. Considering the price, these shifters are simply excellent. Gear changes are now fast and slick and the levers are easy to reach. These are nothing complicated, just press a button to go to a higher gear and push up a lever to go down a gear (it's even marked + and - !).

Both shifters and new cables and cable housing are included. Provided you have a decent cable cutter, these are all easy to install. If you are replacing grip shifters, you should also get new handlebar grips (usually 13cm but do check yourself!). I highly recommend them.

These shifters are very good at the job, and switch gears swiftly, and precise. However, what I don't like so much is the left shifter as it only has one lever for moving up and down the gears for. Rather than two, which seems a bit awkward and odd to me. Easy to configure with the adjusters and I am not even a pro. !

Colour Name: BlackSize: 6 Speed
Bought the 6-speed version of this thumb shifter to replace a horribly stiff twist-shifter which my daughter was finding too difficult to use.

Getting it installed is absolute child's play, but just remember you'll need a rear derailleur (gear changer on the back axle) that is compatible with Shimano's SIS system (most are, but worth checking first). Also remember you'll need to do some adjustment on the derailleur once you've connected and tightened the new shifter cable, so you'll need a basic understanding of what to do. As usual, YouTube helps.

Now for usage. Moving from 1st gear (easy) to 6th (hard) is so easy, just a simple push on the button to swap to the near gear. Dead easy. Moving from 6th back up to 1st just involves pushing the lever up in successive steps. It requires a little more force to move from 3rd to 2nd and from 2nd to 1st, but it's still a lot easier than the twist grip shifter that you're probably replacing.

Overall, works very well once all adjusted.

A very good shifter. When pressed, the button below the thumb lever quickly and easily switches gears when increasing speed. The thumb shifter decreases speed. The parcel includes a click shifter for the crank chain rings, and sheathes for the cables. Plus each shifter is fitted with cables. I'm not using the crank chain ring shifter, but on inspection its lever seems too stiff moving from gear 3 to 1. Despite this I am very happy with the free wheel shifter.

Perfect! Just what was needed for a real upgrade for the cycle I am restoring. The other shifters I tried do not match up to these ones! these are the real deal-100 percent genuine! If You want a good set of shifters then get these ones! they never disappoint, and they really make your cycle stand out and get noticed!

they fitted great on to the handle bars of my mountain bike. so much better than my old revo shiffters. took a time to calibrate but they work very well now after a few minor adjustments. So much quicker to change gear now and look great.

Got these to replace a set of grip shifters on my daughters bike and they make all the difference. changing gear is effortless and so much easier. Did not take too long to fit and almost no adjustment required. Good replacement that I should have done earlier.
