I am in the process of putting on an Easton EC90 handlebar.
I need to take off the Shimano Ultegra STI shifter off the old bar but I can't seem to locate the screw that holds the bracket. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

The allen screw is under the rubber hood. There is a cut out/indentation on the outside edge of the brake hood body. The allen wrench slips in under the rubber hood and along the body at that indentation and it is inside there about 2 inches or so. Must get the wrench in at the correct angle to loosen. If it is really tight, put a crescent wrench on the short angle end of the allen wrench as an extension handle to turn.

I don't have one, but it's probably visible when you pull the lever open, and is probably an allen bolt that is oriented 90 degrees from the place on the handlebar where it's mounted.
whoops. Lone gunman is right. (nm)guido
