    I've just replaced 105 STI 9 speed shifters With Sora 3500 STI, and I can honestly say that the new Sora shifts much better than the old 105. I replaced the 105 because the hoods were rotting from...

    I'm building a tourer, and speed above 40km./hr is not required. I'd like to use Tiagra STI shifters with drop bar, but worry about FD. I have a cyclocross (Bianchi Volpe) with Tiagra FD and mtb...
