Problem Solvers Downtube Shifter Mount

Always wanted downtube shifter mounts, but don’t have the bosses for them? Single speed regret? Maybe you just want to mount shifters in an unconventional place. Problem Solvers has created this clamp on, downtube shifter boss just for you. It fits Shimano downtube shifters, and clamps onto either 28.6 mm or 31.8 mm tubes, though I’ll bet you could shim it to successfully fit most seatposts and some toptubes or even a quill stem if you’re so inclined. Retail is $44, and you can get it at your local shop mid-March. Find out more at www.problemsolversbike.com

    Awesome! Thanks for the post Brad. Just as a point of clarification: we don’t sell direct through the website (and never will). Our “Buy Local Now” buttons direct web shoppers to retailers in their area, from whom they can buy online or in the store. A brief explanation is posted here: http://problemsolversbike.com/blog/comments/buy_local_now_how_you_can_shop_online_locally

    These will be available mid-March. Thanks much!

    They should have called this a steerer tube shifter mount, because that’s where it’ll be used.

    Actually, I just noticed there’s no housing stop on this one so they must be making one of those too.
