Default Flatbar Cross Bike - Shifters?

Decided to switch to flatbar this year.

CAn I keep ultegra Rear and XTR top pull in front with trigger shift?

Best trigger shift?

Thanks

Yup, if it's 9-speed. All Shimano 9-speeds, barring the first year of DA9
have the same cable pull.

I have Deores, and the only difference I see between them and the XTs is
plastic vs alloy.Shimano also makes ones specific for FBR bikes, but they
look like the ATB ones without the group logos.

It'll work perfectly now matter how many speeds the bike is. Just make
sure your new shifters are the same speed as your cassette.

All 9s starting in 1997, until today, have had the same cable pull. I'm
thinking you are thinking about DA8s, which was unique in the shimano
lineup.

Any shimano MTB shifters will work for you.

You're absolutely right on all counts, and I realized it as soon as I
posted it, but thought the point too tangential to the OP to post a
correction, since we probably weren't going to involve any DA parts in the
equation.

Thanks for keeping us honest!
