These are the mounts you’ll need to use our Silver1 or Silver2 shifters as thumb shifters. They’re sold individually, so you can do fun stuff like have two different types of shifters on one bike, or for 1x set-ups.
With the shims installed, they fit 22.2mm bars, like Bosco, Choco, Alba and all “mountain” bars. If you take the shims out, you can mount them to the sleeve of 26.0 bars, like the noodle or the 26.0 Albastache. They will not fit the grip area of the albastache or other road drop. They do, however, fit perfectly on a 1 inch quill stem – see the photo to the left.
What makes them special, and what separates them from every other thumbshifter mount out there, is the 16 different positions possible for the cable exit point. That means, no matter where you put them on the handlebar, the cable can have a perfect route to the downtube stops.
Note: If you want to run the shifters right in front of mountain brake levers, you might have to flip the levers (run the left on the right and vice versa), otherwise the shifter might butt up into the lever clamp bolt. We don’t have every brake lever to try out here, but we know that Dia Compe SS-6s and all Paul levers have clamp bolts tucked in enough that you don’t have to flip them. See the pictures to the left.

*We only mount these on the inside of bars – if you prefer having them on the outside, buy the opposite of what’s listed here.
If you’re using these with Silver1 or Silver2 shifters, be sure to match type O to type O, and type X to type X. In other words, a type X shifter won’t go on a type O pod/thumb shifter mount.
