I have zeroed on buying Btwin RC 100
But hate the index shifters for drop handles.
Saw a video on youtube where the person has changed to Shimano claris levers. But has also changed the entire gear set to shimano claris.
Can I just replace the 7 gear index shifters to shimano Claris (which I think is 8 gear shifter) on the Btwin without changing the stock derailer or casette ?

Hey it won’t be worth the hassle.
Yes, it will work. But not smoothly. The indexing of the 8 speed Claris will not match exactly with the Tourney groupset on the RC 100.
Either ride the bike as is or buy a bike with better components. Wouldn’t even recommend upgrading to Claris. Again not worth the hassle/ money!
