Hi,
A bit embarassed about this as I do all my own maintenace; but cant find the bolt which holds my 105 STI levers to the bars. One of them has slipped down and I need to adjust it and tighten the bolt. Any one know/got pics?
regards

Cant say for 105, but Sora, you pull back the rubber hood at the side and the screws revealed.

It's inside the STI unit quite a long way down and recessed so not easy to spot (on the side of the unit away from the bars). Fold back the rubber cover, pull the brake levers and shine a tourch in / fish about with an Allen key.

with the older type lever, you need to release the cable at the brake calper end and pull the brake lever - this will create a gap trough wchih you can get an allen key to the bolt holding it on.

from memory and wot ^^^ say, the new fangled STI may have a more user friendly arrangment.
