Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I made the switch from drop bars to flat bars recently and wishing I'd made it years ago. The feel, control, body position, view of the road and overall enjoyment of cycling is enhanced beyond expectation. The Ultegra flat bar shifters are an integral part of this enjoyable change. They are sturdy and feel solid in use; the metal shifter levers give positive feedback and a confident yet smooth click into place, every shift. I also used the shimano brake levers to complement the set-up and some Ergon grips to seal the deal. An overall professional look, positive, comfortable feel and hugely enjoyable riding experience. Given the amount of pleasure, they are a real bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These are terrific shifters for making a 10sp flat bar road bike. Regarding the use of FD-773 or FD-770 front derailleurs as recommended, you will get a much easier small to big chainring shift if you use the flat bar derailleurs. If you have strong hands fine but it can be fatiguing to use a standard derailleur. The adjustment is trickier too so I recommend using the 700 series derailleurs and have a flawless system. I like these way more than the thumb thumb action of
SRAM and they are only for 2x10's. R770's shift silky and are easy to install and I've never had any of my customers ever ask to go back to road bars. They wonder why road bars exist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I have these on a hybrid that I was commute 250Km per week on. As stuff wore out I upgraded the drive train to a mixture of 105 and ultegra and put on a decent set of road wheels.
Done about 5000Km on them so far and very reliable shifting still as smooth as the day I got them.
I have XTR pod shifters on my MTB and the fact that the down shift isn't two way is an irritation also I wish they were available without the useless indicator window so I can set up the bar how I prefer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Used these to convert a drop bar Avanti Giro to flat bar. The bike has all 105 components and these match perfectly. Precise and good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I used these shifters with my road bike's drive train, a Dura Ace 7900 system with FSA SL-k crank, set for 10 speed cabon fiber frame. They are awesome, very responsive and reliable as well as the only solution to my flat bar conversion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought these to convert my high end drop bike to flat bar as my back simply could not take the drop bar position. I have found them great with smooth shifting. I have also found that they work fine with my 105 standard front triple mech so I have not needed to buy the suggested "special front mech" for these shifters. If you are considering converting your drop to flat bar then these really are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Bought these in order to convert my bike from a drop bar to a flat bar bike. I had some 105's on the previous bike. These are great shifters; accurate and quick. Only let down by the fact that they feel siligtly plasticy, however now i have them i would not swap them and have no plans to replace them for some time!

Unfortunately we would only have the Left Hand version of the 'Shimano Ultegra R770 Triple 10sp Flatbar Shifter' listed on the Stock file and regrettably at this time we would be unable to get the Right Hand Version.
