How to tell Shimano 105 ST-5700 double from ST-5703 triple?

Does a Shimano ST-5703 actually have that stamped on it as a part number or do all doubles and triples say ST-5700? My left shifter seems to say ST-5799 for some reason (unless I am blind...you know there is that presbiopia thing at my age so I am half blind) and has 3 clicks. Does a double have 3 clicks and a triple have like 5 clicks to compensate for trim?

I 'think' you are mis-reading ST-5700 as 5799. If so, you've got a double.

Getting old is a bit*h isn't it?

It does appear to say ST-5700. Time for a new pair of reading glasses.

I keep one of these (10X) on my keychain. I must use it 10 times a day: Hastings Triplet Magnifiers ? Hastings Triplet Magnifiers Incorporate Three Separate Lenses : Bausch + Lomb

My Swiss Army Knife has a magnifier on it that gets frequent use. I have various loups and magnifiers scattered through out my life as well.

To the OP's question. One can always just run the shifter through it's range and count the positions. Andy.
