    I am wanting to change my road bike handlebars to flat ones and need to know which ATB shifters are the most compatible with Shimano Sora 8-speed derailluers. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Try SRAM shimano-compatible gripshifts (NOT the ones intended for use with SRAM derailleurs). The front shifter will be a ratcheted type (analagous to Campy Ergo), and the rear will have the appropriate pull ratio to work with Shimano derailleurs and SRAM/Shimano cassettes. Of course, you will need 8s shifters.
