Subject: Bar end shifter question

So I'm upgrading my older Shimano DA drive train to the 11 speed Ultegra 6800 set and had a question on the shifters. Looks like Shimano only sells DA 9000 TT bar end shifters, and they run $90.

Are there any "value" alternatives out there?

It's important to match shifters with rear derailleurs of the same brand. Each brand has mechanical ratios for precise shifting; otherwise, the chain won't shift correctly. Just pay the $90 bucks for 11 speed, or upgrade to 10 speed for less cost.

Microshift makes Shimano-compatible bar end shifters, but you'll only save $10-20. It's pretty hard to pass up Dura Ace for generic when the price difference is that small.

I have a four week gap between the end of my sprint program and the beginning of my Olympic plan. Is it ok to just keep adding the volume needed to begin the Olympic plan?

I read somewhere about "bar ends" to put on your handle bars, do you recommend them? Is this similar to adding clip on aero bars?

You can spend a small fortune on these pre-wrapped bundles of energy, thinking they offer magic ingredients-not true. “Energy” simply means “provides calories” and not “will make you feel energetic."

If you develop a strategy for the off-season, you can go into the next season stronger than you ended the past season.
