ebikestop has them listed for $180.45. It looks like a good price but I have never bought from them. Anyone have experience with them?

The shifter uses independent up/down shifters for smooth precise shifting at any time - while pedaling coasting, or even at a complete stop. The Versa lever set works exclusively with the Shimano Alfine 8 and Nexus 8 internal gear hubs, providing a wide range of gearing from a compact internal hub."
