E-Z fire 7 speed shift/brake lever set.
There's a lot of older 21 speed mountain bikes out there with traditional cantilever brakes. This is a great replacement set.
Shifters: 7 speed index rear / 3 speed indexed front
Brake levers: Compatible with cantilever AND Linear-pull (V-type) brakes.
The brake levers are pre-set for V-brakes and will have to be adjusted for use with cantilevers. Unscrew the red plastic tab, lower the cable pivot to position "C" and reinnsert the red tab.)
Comes with SHIFT cables and housing.

Replaced Sram twist shifters with these. I'd rather have old school friction shift than twist shift so these were an excelent upgrade for me. As bad as I dislike twist shift, gear shifts were pretty much thoughtless. With these I have to keep reminding myself wich lever gears up and which one gears down. Works perfectly with my Shimano freewheels but not so great with the IRD freewheel I ordered. I believe that is more the freewheel than the shifters. 1st and 2nd gear do not seem spaced correctly. Also works great with the el cheapo Falcon freewheel that came on my bike. The brake levers seem a much better match to the disk brakes on my Mongoose Deception than what came on it (yeah, I know it's a cheap bike but with upgrades it's deccent). Much more comfortable having a full grip than the stubby twist grips. Nice gear indicator. I wish I had gotten them in black. Cable housings are much nicer than the stock ones that came on my bike and have a nice lining.
My mostly residential route two times a day, 17 miles each time, all hills, very busy shifter, and shifter still work great. Bicycle now has a little over 17,000 miles. I'm on 3rd set of tires, and third set of brake pads, and second 7-speed Shimano freewheel. This retired old man lost lots of weight!
