    Quick SIS Question

    I've got a set of DT Cable stops for SIS, and one side is a grey plastic adjustible stop and the other side is a silver lever that is also some other kind of adjustible stop..that i've definitely not seen before.

    Which one goes on the Front Derailleur side and which on the Rear?

    Left one is the basic barrell. Right one is the lever stop.

    They are the Dura Ace stops, sell for a little more, like $20 vs. $10 for the straight barrrel jobs.

    The lever provides more cable tension with the flick of it, probably has 3 "indented" positions. I've never moved either one. I guess some cables stretch, or something, while riding.

    +1. The lever is meant to provide fine tuning for the rear derailleur, in a race situation.

    So since this is not meant for racing would I be better off with the basic barrel stop on the RD?

    Seems like it would give a finer adjustment since it doesn't have stops on it like the lever. :dunno:

    nah, your rear derailleur already has a barrel. your front derailleur doesn't.
    Funny, i asked this same question a week ago. :-)

    Its been awhile but I think the primary reason for the 'click' style right adujster is to allow the use of non-Shimano wheels or wheels with different high gear to drop out spacing in the event wheel replacement is needed.

    If a different wheel is used you click the adjuster the appropriate number of clicks to keep the chain from dropping or to macro adjust the indexing to get you home.
