I'm trying to move my shifters up from the downtube
to the handlebar and this seems like it may be a
cheaper alternative to expensive STI shifters that
may not even be compatible with my older Suntour
components. If you have experience with these
"Take Offs" let me know what you think.

They are heavy, awkward and absolutely no improvenebt over bar end shifters(IMHO). Another point is that the 'finish' came off almost immediately. sell an adapter pod to convert your downtubers to barend for $20 I think. Bought my Kellys from the same source for $40 a set.
