I have Shimano Deore derailleurs 3x8 and I am thinking about upgrading my system with a combined shifter/brake system, such as Microshift's SB-R483. Microshift themeselves states that this system is only compatible with Shimano Claris 8 speed 2403,2303,3303 derailleur system.
However, half ignoring their statement, could it be possible to use the SB-R483-system for a Shimano Deore derailleur? Doesn't Shimano have an internal standard for the derailleur system so that a Shimano compatible 3x8 shifter fits any Shimano 3x8 derailleur system. Any experience or superb technical knowledge?
