I'd say get any cheap thumb shifter. Much easier to operate than grip+twist shifter. Click down is very easy. Shift up requires a firm push with the thumb. My daughter when learning to shift gears had a big problem. She's a tough cookie but more delicate hands than average and the twist shifts were just too stiff. You don't notice this with big strong ...

With Shimano STI brake lever and shifter combos, you have two options for where a barrel adjuster is placed. An inline barrel adjuster can be placed on the cable housing, between where it leaves the handle at and the frame. This is more common with the shift cables than the brakes, but it is possible. At the point where the cable enters the brake ...

I don't think this works for several reasons. First, the top cog on the first RD would have a much higher tension on it than designed as the chain comes up from the tension cog on the first RD and then back down towards the tension cog on second RD. The other issue is the indexing. Proper indexing requires that the top cog is close to the cassette. For ...

The reason why the RD has that bend in it is because it is what tension the chain in every single cog in the cassete. Also if it does somehow work. The length of your chain will increase, because it will have 2 cages to go through.

I can say from experience this does not work well at all. Although as mentioned above the chain does run through the shifting is dreadful. I tried it with a 10 speed shifter but gears would always have a spot where they would jump. Just get a 10 speed rear derailleur. You will be glad you did.

Will it work? Probably. The range of movement of the mech wont be an issue and the chain will run through it, so I cant see why it wouldnt work.

Yes, all Shimano 8-speed shifters and rear derailleurs except Dura-Ace are compatible. Road and off road front derailleurs have different cable pull, but since both 600 and Claris are road component series, they are compatible too.
