Anywhere to get Barcon shifters cheaper?

Postby hartleymartin » Wed Jan 27, 2010 5:42 pm

I'm looking around at Barcon shifters and these have come up:

http://www.bicyclestore.com.au/shimano-bar-end-shifter-set.html
$140 8-speed
$146 9-speed
$221 10-speed

I'm looking around for the 9-speed variety and wondering if anyone knows if there is anything cheaper available?

Ribble A$48.51 http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/road-t ... 0000000000

CRC $76.23 AUD http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=13648

Slane $79.55AUS http://www.slanecycles.com/shimano-9spd ... -1326.html

Wiggle $91.10 http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Shima ... 300002745/

PBK A$91.40 http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=D1089

NOTE: I didn't check out shipping costs which will prolly make a difference in the comparative prices.

Good luck and happy shopping!

EDIT: UGH! I just noticed that Ribble are out of stock :twisted: CRC has $17 shipping, Slane has $17 shipping.

hey martin, I picked mine up from the Deus Ex swapmeet last year, if you didn't already know you can easily adapt any speed downtube shifter to use as barcons as well.
