    Yes.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.
  • nope, you cannot do this with safety in mind.. r8000 calipers have a different cable pull requirement than claris shifters can throw. plus, the r8000 calipers are very stiff so you will end up with no brakes as the body of the shifter will bend in hard braking..

    If only Shimano published some sort of compatibility chart.

    Oh hang on they do:

    And it's fine. See chart C-456

    Not sure what tsarouxaz is talking about.
