    STI with dia compe 610 sidepulls

    Can I make the move to STI and still use the existing 1987 dia compe side pull brakes on my Pug? Harris Cyclery has the 8 speed STI conversion kit with cables, stops, and brifters very reasonable.

    Thanks,
    NFields

    '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

    Pretty much any sidepull (or centerpull or cantis for that matter) road brakes will work with STI levers. The only "mis-match" is with V-brakes so you should have no problems.
