I'm after STI shifters as this is a replacement for my now sold road bikeFunnily enough I've been thinking of these as well, probably early next year after thinning down my current bike collection. Just not sure if I wouldn't be better off spending a similar amount of money on an older but higher quality touring bike instead. Maybe something like an older Galaxy or even one of the original 531 framed Raleigh Royals. Seen 80s and 90s versions go relatively cheaply and that would leave the difference for upgrading here and there while still coming in about the same price as a new Raleigh Royal.
Ah, while I'm thinking of this to replace my Tiagra equipped Specialized Allez, I can live without brifters and after my recent Peugeot restoration, have been getting to quite like friction downtube shifters again!I'm after STI shifters as this is a replacement for my now sold road bike
