|Branford lists curved backs and straight backs. What are the differences?

|curved are easier to locate over straights, although you'll/you'd get used to/familiar with either in the long run.|

|I don't quite follow. What do you mean by locate? Does that mean curved or straight will both fit any DT boss?

|Carlos, the curved or straight has to do with the surface of the stop that will but up against the side of the down tube. The curved model is for smaller-diameter steel tubing and the straight is for the larger diameter aluminum tubing that will have a flatter profile on the side of the down tube. Maybe there is a better explanation??|

|Sorry, well, no I'm not really cause I never say sorry, unless I really, really need to, shizza happens, I is only human, I read you're posting wrong, I thought you were on about gear levers rather than the down tube STI/Ergo gear cable adjusters.
Anyway, straight backs are normally used on alloy and composite frame, whereas curved back adjusters are used on steel frames.
