|Whenever I've bought a new set of STI levers, they always included a pair of cable stops that replace the down tube levers.
It's never been an issue with me, but I'm told that you need a relatively new front derailleur to work with the STI levers.
|If you don't have the stops...||retro|

|Actually they're easier to find now than they used to be, because STI requires them. If your shop doesn't have them, though, you can get them from Rivendell, www.rivbike.com|| |
