Post Shimano SL-R770 shifters manual

Trek along with some other companies that make hybrids are using the Shimano SL-R770 shifters on some of their models. I found Shimano's informative manual on these shifters and simply wanted to share the link --

http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830606130.pdf

im putting it on BF so anyone with questions on the shifters can find the information they need at the above link.

fwiw.

I found the shifters on the Shimano Australia web site. Here is a link to the page from which you can download the available Shimano documents it appears.

Thanks. I didn't know they would upshift more than one chain ring at a time on the rear cassette.

^ yeah, the manuals were great, i learned a couple of things too on how they work. now i understand why it takes 2 shots to change gears up front - for that silent shifting thing to kick in. very nice and a much appreciated feature.
