Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and functional I've been using Ultegra 6480 8-speed bar-con shifters on my commuter bike for a few years and several thousand kilometers. I'm using them mounted to Paul Components Thumbies shifter mounts for a super light retro top-mount shifter set-up. Ultegra shifting is crisp and smooth, and the friction bail-out function is useful should one knock the rear derraileur out of whack. I'm used these shifters with both 8-speed XT and XTR clusters, and the shifting has always been flawless when dialed in correctly. I liked this set-up so much, I'm now using 9-speed Dura-Ace bar-cons on my other 9-speed bikes, again with Paul Components Thumbies mounts. If you are like me and started riding mountain bikes before below-bar shifters were even an idea, you may just find that the old school way is the best way of going about shifting. 02 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good shifters for road I use them at handlebar, which was made in Soviet Union. Over all, they works with rear Alivio and front Deare derailleurs. Shifting is well! 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 8 speed bar end shifters did what i want it to do with out all the frills no messing simple 15 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, light, great value Fitted these to my commuter/cyclocross bike to replace the standard Shimano STI shifters. I'm not a huge fan of the STI shifters (granted the ones on the bike were the 2300 range so not Shimano top drawer stuff) as I never really liked the feel when braking - almost like the action wasn't positive or solid enough (YMMV!) I was after something light, durable and solid but had a relatively limited budget. These shifters fit the bill. Easy to fit (with inner and outer cables included) and easy to set-up. Love the friction shifting on the front derailleur as it allows some fine tuning...and the friction shifting on the rear derailleur would function perfectly as a get you home solution should things get knocked out of whack. 07 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant! I recently fitted these to a winter training bike that I use all the time. I have MTB rear sprockets and some bargain basement triple at the front. I didn't expect these to work flawlessly but they do. The front changes by friction without problems and the rear, surprisingly, indexes as well! I'm delighted. I thought that I wouldn't like them as much as the STI brifters on my other bike but I do. In fact if my brifters go I won't replace them I'll use these instead. 01 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff, top quality, you can switch between index and friction shifting, comes with everything needed to install, top kit go buy them. 01 July 2008

Answer: 
These shifters are not compatible with an 8-speed drivetrain. The 10-speed shifters listed below would be a better option.
