Hello,

My girlfriend needs to replace both her shimano 600 8-speed shifters, and I have seen a few possible replacements on ebay, but i am not sure if the left shifter can function as either a 2x or 3x. Are front shifters capable of being both 2x and 3x?

thank you

DA and 600 8 speed front shifters were double only. 105,rx-100 and RSX 8 speed were available as double or triple specific front.A triple front will shift a double ok.Just use the first and second position and block the third with the hi limit screw.The triple fronts have no trim positions though.
