Rather suddenly we've seen several new drop-bar shifters appear for Alfine 8, Alfine 11, and Rohloff.
Among them is the new UX integrated shifter/levers for Alfine 8, brought to you by Portland's own Gevenalle.
UX Shifters are sold as pairs and are compatible with Shimano 8-Speed Alfine internally geared hubs.
UX1 is for bikes with single chainrings only. It will work with short-pull disc brakes or any other short-pull brakes, such as road calipers, cantilevers, or even mini-v’s. If you have long-pull brakes and/or a double or triple chain,ring you will want a set of UX2’s.
UX2 shifters will work with any type of cable pull brake thanks to its adjustable brake cable pull mounts. They will work with long-pull disc brakes such as BB7 Mountain (but not BB7 Road). These are set up to work with double or triple chain rings. You can use them for single chainrings if you remove the left shifter and its mount.
Designed and assembled in Portland.
