REach Adjustment shims for Shimano Tiagra Brifters

First, thanks for any help if it comes in respose to this question.

My girlfriend has a Bianchi Alex with tiagra brifters. SHe has small hands. I see when searching the web that the Tiagra brifters can be shimmed in order to reduce the reach (she has a specialized ruby with ultegra shifters - also shimmed. these shims look like they'd be the wrong shape for a tiagra shifter.

Does anyone know where one can obtain these Tiagra shims (supposed to be available in 8 and 10 degree varieties). We didn't get any with the bike - a 2006 model. I've done some searching on the net, lots of references to these shims, but cant find them seperately.

thanks again.

Try contacting Shimano USA directly. Their catalog request number is 1-949-951-5003 but that may also let you talk to someone about what you need. I also have a Tech Service number listed for them that I think is still valid at 1-800-423-2420.
