If you want to keep your classic road bike going but have had enough of down-tube shift levers, these 7-speed levers (for double chainrings) are a surprisingly affordable upgrade to integrate your shift levers with your brake levers.
Cable release lever is a small thumb lever on the inside of the shifter body (similar to Campagnolo style). The brake cable runs under the handlebar tape; the shift cables exit on the inside of the lever body (the way all older style Shimano road STI shift/brake levers were). Gear and brake cables and casings included. NOTE - you may need to install shift cable stops on the downtube; they are not included with this product. Shipping Weight: 700 g.
