General Information
MTB shifters. Left side is friction operated, right side is inexed and only works with a Mavic derailleur and cogs. Indexing is a very crude design with a large saucer spring that presses two toothed disks together. Its operation is adjustable with the black disk (large width across flats), that is countered with the allen bolt.
The levers themselves are little more than a formed piece of square iron.
