    Set a 10speed shifter up for 9 speed bike

    I am setting up a Trek 1500 with a 9 speed mountain cassette 11-34. Can I use the current Shimano 10 speed STI shifter by blocking that last shift?

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    Yes, but you also need to get one of these (see model #2)...
