    8-sp 600 STI and 8-sp DA STI hoods

    I used to come up empty every single time I looked for these. So often, that I sold my 8-sp DA and 8-sp tricolor STI groups, as the hoods started to deteriorate and I couldn't find any.

    Looks like they are now available:

    It does hurt, but they'll ship it quick and include a handwritten thank you. Nice couple.

    You should've added some bearing balls to the order! Somehow adding a few ounces for a couple bucks makes the flat shipping rate easier to swallow.

    Oh man....they have 105 8sp STI that will fit the Ultegra STIs as well in WHITE! mmmmmmmmm *imagines that on my bike*

    Tempting....I think I'll stick with black (mine are luckily still in really good condition) so I won't have to worry about keeping it super clean =] But oh how pretty and unique that'd be....

    Get the white, have an auto body shop paint them red with interior trim paint.

    However, I'm not sure 8sp 105 hoods are the same. I've never seen them side by side.
    I think the 8sp 105/RSX/RX100 hoods were all the same, just not sure of the 600/DA hoods.
