|Shimano Exage 400EX and STI Shifters/Brake levers???||igorn|

I have simple technical question. Is Shimano Exage 400EX rear derailleur (it is made in 94') compatible with STI shifters/brake levers (105, tiagra, sora...)?
Also, I would like to know if there are STI compatible shifters/brake levers from another manufacturers (I saw Modolo Morphos).

|You didn't mention how many speeds or what you're trying to accomplish, but you sure don't want to spend money on pricey new STI shifters, just to make use of a $15, 8 year old derailleur.
The general answer is that any 7 speed Shimano shifters will work any of their 7 speed derailleurs.
The new 9 speed shifters will even work with an old 8 speed cassette, if you use a new 9 speed rear derailleur and attach the derailleur cable properly.
Check this site for more info:
I know of no other company but modolo that offers a shimano brake/shift lever. The modolo model has not received good reviews. Apparently it's pretty awkward to operate.
