I just picked up some used ST-7700 STI shifters and would like to install them on my 2x8 road bike (I currently have bar end friction shifters). My front mech is a Dura Ace FD-7700 and my rear is an XTR RD-M960-GS or SGS. I think this should work judging from the bits of info I've found so far but I'd really appreciate it if someone who knows for sure could confirm this for me. If it will indeed work do I just hook them up or will I need to do any special adjustments to my cables or derailleurs?
Thanks for reading!
EDIT: OH NO! I just examined the shifters I bought more closely and discovered the downshift lever on the right shifter is very stiff and can only complete a shift when I apply opposite pressure to the brake lever. I did some searching and this seems to be a common problem with these shifters and usually not fixable. Unbelievable, the guy who sold it to me had to have known about this. I guess I got played for a fool.
