IN THE SAME CATALOG THERE ARE D/T SHIFTERS ALSO LISTED ON PAGE 14 AND 15. I HAVE BEEN ASSURED THAT D/T AND BAR-END SHIFTERS CAME OUT AT THE SAME TIME, WITH THE D/T SHIFTERS DEEMED TO BE THE LESSER VERSION. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PART NUMBERS, YOU WILL SEE THAT THE PART NUMBER ASSIGNED TO THE D/T SHIFTER IS LOWER THAN THAT ASSIGNED TO THE FRONT DERAILLEUR BAR-END SHIFTER (BUT HIGHER THAN THE REAR DERAILLEUR BAR-END SHIFTER)
