Is the rubber that fits around Ultegra brifters available?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

OOps

It appears that I need the plastic part not the rubber.

Can I get those, is that replaceable?

Most any of the on line Shimano dealers carries the replacement hoods. Do a google search for Ultegra shifter hoods.

Or your LBS can easily order them. It takes just a few days.
