What front der. has the easiest spring tension?Ash

Hi all,

Am still trying to work out setting up STI's on my wife's road bike. She has very small hands, and a perpetually painful ring finger.

I just installed new 105 shifters, cables, housing on her frame and re-used the ancient 105 front derail.

She's having a very difficul time shifting up in the the big ring.

I want to try a new front der. to see if that is where the high tension is, and will also put my Chorus on there to see if she likes the action of that better.

Any suggestions for a front der. for a 2 ring setup that has the lowest spring tension?

no idea, but...?widerporst

...what about a classic frame mounted shifter for the front der. ?
