      I have a older mountain bike setup with cantilever brakes. In order to use a newer fork setup for V brakes, I’m thinking that I will switch to a front V brake, if I can find a front V brake lever that has a 3 speed integral shifter for the front derailleur. Does Shimano make these? Which Shimano model?
      Thanks in advance for your help.

      Actually, I think they make a version of them in every line all the way up to the XTR.


      These aren’t super common anymore even though Shimano still makes them. It might also be cheaper to just buy a set of cheap v-brake levers and a set of separate shifters. If you do want some, you’ll have decent luck on Ebay.
