Converting from braze-on shifters to Dura Ace STI(3 posts)

I have an older Merlin road bike with braze-on shifters. I want to convert to Shimano's STI system. I haven't seen any posts about this process so either this is incredibly easy or no one has braze-ons any more. :-)

Thanks in advance.

Your shifters will come with converters (cable stops that fit on the braze-ons) so you needn't worry about it. As long as your bike can take a 9-speed wheel, you're golden.

I knew it had to be a no brainer. Thanks.
