It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment If I use an 8 speed bar end shifter with the TT bar on my Allez, will I need to change any other parts of the drive chain?
You should probably find a new mechanic. That guy is either too lazy or incompetent to find you the part you need, or he just straight-up lied to you to sell you more parts. Whichever the case, he doesn't deserve your business.

comment Shimano Sora 9-speed shifters “missing a speed”
@PeteH I wasn't suggesting a skipping chain. I'm suggesting that if the OP is counting 8 clicks and hasn't visually confirmed that the chain skips over a gear that there actually may be nothing wrong at all.

comment Shimano Sora 9-speed shifters “missing a speed”
Are you sure it's missing a gear? Have you actually watched the chain skip over a cog? As @kibbee points out in his answer, a 9 speed setup should only click 8 times from one extreme to the other.
