      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.

      Yep…

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

      EDIT:

      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.
