    Shimano barcon shifter for Alfine?

    Does anyone seen on the limited edition of the Specialized AOWL bike, equipped with alfine 8 speed, there’s a barcon shifter that does not look like the Jtek.
    There is a review of the bike in the prollyisnotprobably blog, and the tester said in the comment that it is a Shimano part.
    Finally a cheaper official option for the drop bar user of the Alfine?

    That is funny I just called shimano today and asked them about bar end shifters and alfine. The kid that I talked to said there is nothing in the works or coming out in the near future. Does anybody know if the Jtek works with a paul thumbie adapter?
