Are the Shimano DuraAce bar-end shifters the shifters used on the end of aero bars? So you can shift without moving practically?
I just want to make sure, I'm setting up a TT bike.
The description of them never says anything about TT bars or anything and want to make sure I get the right shifters.

Are these the right ones?

It depends on the aerobars you are using. If you use a bar with open ends llike a Profile CarbonStryke, the bar-end shifters are the correct ones. If you use a closed-end bar like the Profile AirStryke 2000, get the swift-shift kit from Profile and use the down-tube shifters.

Thanks, I should of said what I had. I do have the Profile Carbon Strykes.
Now the question is, for $52.95 do I get both shifters or just one? I wish these companies would put (pr. or ea.) beside items.

Hi,
I'm using Dura-Ace bar-end shifters on my Carbon-X, and they work great. Highly recommended. Keeps you aero all ride long.
