Bar end shiftersHENRY K

I have been running an Ultegra group with STIs. I received a set of Dura Ace bar end shifters for Xmas. The box says "for D/A only" "Will work only with D/A deraileurs" Will I have to replace my Ultegra 9 speed stuff and switch to a D/A rear and/or front deraileur? I have not seen any Ultegra bar end shifters in any catalogs.

...I'm running 9sp D/A barcons with an XT rear/LX front, and they're fine. There
i were
compatibility issues with the 8sp stuff, but as long as yours is 9sp, there should be no problem.

At 9 speed, 105/Ultegra/DA are all the same part (for bar end shifters). You should be fine.
Thank youHENRY K
