    as above. but if you prefer the sora shifters with the thumb button, you won't be losing too much.

    The sora shifters change to smaller cogs by using a thumb button.

    For most people this means that you can't change gear while in the drops. If that bothers you, go Tiagra - they change to smaller cogs using a paddle that is easily reachable from hoods or drops. Personally I like Tiagra a lot better than I liked the Sora shifters. YMMV.

    Slightly off topic, whenever someone types 'tiagra' it reminds me of 'viagra'....
