Separated or conjoined brake levers and gear shifter

Separated or conjoined brake levers and gear shifter

With the developing of electric bicycles, more and more people enjoy their relax and fun riding journey every day. Not only ride bikes to commute, but also ride them with friends at weekend. There are many  electric bicycle types on market. So electric bicycle components become a standard to compare with each electric bicycle except frame material and frame design. Gear shifter is main controlling part to shift electric bike gears.

Usually located on the handlebars, the shifter connect to the bicycle’s derailleurs via a wire cable. Pushing or pulling the shifter levers moves the cable and causes the derailleur to push the chain onto a different gear. Moving up and down through gears as well as a range that can adapt to both road and off-road cycling for easier changes no matter the terrain. And some gear shifter conjoined with brake levers, some separate with brake levers.What is difference about them? And which one is better? Let us tell in this article.

We talk about the SHIMANO gear shifter on the flat handlebar. What is the biggest difference between SHIMANO separated brake levers and gear shifter and conjoined brake levers and gear shifter? As far as I’m concerned, the biggest difference is about brake levers and gear shifter whether they are conjoined. You can observer on the compare picture. Obviously, the separated brake levers and gear shifter made of a pair of thumb triggers and standard brake levers. And conjoined brake levers and gear shifter is integrated with a wire cable connect to the derailleur.

Separated brake levers and gear shifter is easy to replace when one of the brake lever or gear shifter is damaged. Unlike conjoined brake levers and gear shifter, if one of the thumb triggers or brake levers was damaged, you need to replace the all. However, separated brake lever and gear shifter have two parts need to assemble on the flat handlebar, it support adjust the angle of brake levers you need and fit your hands.  

Why we upgrade to use conjoined brake levers and gear shifter?

The first reason is the brake power. Conjoined brake levers and gear shifter stop the electric bicycle quickly and cut-off electric as the same time which is more safety and security than separated brake levers and gear shifter. In comparison with separated brake levers and gear shifter, integrated brake/shifter have long lasting and two thumb triggers below the bar is fit the ergonomic design, intended to be operated by the rider’s thumb. A small “trigger” operated by the rider’s index finger to select smaller sprockets. You just repeated presses to shifter to change the gears and speed while you riding on the road.

Next difference is gear shifter display. Unlike conjoined brake levers and gear shifter display gear level, separated brake levers and gear shifter just display the gear level on the right gear shifter. Conjoined brake lever and gear shifter can through the digital display to know the gear level clearly, right display rear flywheel gear level and left display front flywheel gear level. Actually, I think the integrated gear/shifter more convenient and easier to use. So all of company electric bicycle equipped with a pair of conjoined brake levers and shifter. The integrated gear/shifter by most electric bicycle riders have been proven over the years to provide safe, comfortable and reliable performance.

All of electric bicycles use high quality components, include SHIMANO integrated gear/shifter set and derailleur, TKETRO mechanical or hydraulic disc brake and so on. All of those components protect your riding security and provide a excellent riding experience.
