Hi,

We have an older bike that uses Shimano SIS TY15-A shifters. They have become brittle with age and the right one has broken.

Would the Falcon 5-Speed Thumbshifters 71250 be suitable as replacements please? Or would the Sunrace Friction Thumbshifters 1079 be better?
 
Regards,
Warren

 

Hi Warren,

Either would be OK. As long as the old system was 5-speed. The advantage of friction shifters is they're compatible with anything and tolerant of worn/sticking cables.

Cheers,
Mark.
