Retroshift, the idea of Portland's Adam Kremen with the help of Mark DiNucci, is a new and old item that has been attracting a lot of attention. In a word, it is an analog version of the STI brake lever with the W lever or bar control moved above the brake lever.

Local riders in Portland are all saying that it has the advantage of being able to shift 4-5 gears at a time, and its simple and lightweight construction is also making it difficult to break.

Retro Shift changed its name to Givenalle and began to focus on the development of components that match the more diverse needs of dirt riding, and has grown to become an indispensable manufacturer.


The GEVENALLE CX1 Grey is a very simple bike that can be used in cyclo-cross racing and is also recommended for gravel riding. The only problem is that you cannot operate the handlebar when you hold the lower handlebar, but this is not a problem when riding in the dirt, as such situations are rare.

For those who have been using double levers and are not sure whether to convert to STI levers or not, you can convert to analog STI without wasting your existing parts.

If you are using SL-7900, you can simply install the STI lever as it is, but the old Shimano W lever has a washer with a radius along the down tube, so it cannot be installed on the retro shifter as it is. Also, in the case of bar control systems, there are cases where one side has a FAT type washer, and in this case, it is necessary to replace it with a STANDARD.

* CX1 is only compatible with rear shifter installation, and is designed for single front shifter.

  • Short pull (for caliper brake / cantilever brake)
  • Long pull (for V-brake / mechanical disc brake)

Shifter is required separately.
