|but as it was a pro team and it ended up being significant to the reults i would have wanted more than a handshake.
if it was my c-40.......... sheesh
a very BIG $$$ thank you would have been what id expect.
true stories are always more amazing than fiction

|go to the picture and see how both bikes have them pointing up almost the same way.|

|Might be a Shimano "adaptation". ;-)
FWIW: I suspect many/most Ergo users have their hoods set-up almost horizontal.
|Does that mean ...||Elefantino|

|that all people who use Campy are "cool" and all those who use Shimano are "dorks"?

|I think the difference in mounting position has to do with the shape of the levers. I.e. The STI levers have a "shorter" and more curved design (compared to Ergo) which encourages the "high" mounting position. Although I sold my STI bike early last year, I do recall having the levers mounted fairly high to get them to feel reasonably comfy. I never did really "adapt" to them .... so, away it went ;-)
IMHO, Ergo levers are more comfy "flat" or nearly so than tilted up. Ultimately, it's a personal deal though.

|...maybe their trying to compensate for something? :)
Remember - It's not about the bike. :-)
