New toroad biking, was wondering how I can tweak my set up , as of now I feel that the ultegra shifters I have on my bars are too far down on the drops making me too extended, what is the best wya to move them up?
Do I ahve to unwrap the bar.....then where are the screws that hold the clamp on the levers?

|Yes, you'll have to unwrap the bar. To reach the clamp bolt, peel back the hood on the outward-facing side of the lever and slide a 5mm Allen wrench into the wedge-shaped slot until it bottoms out on the bolt head.|
|B4 you unwrap the bars try rotating them.||dzrider|

|Loosen the bolt(s) on the stem that hold the handlebar. Rotate the bars so the hoods come up higher and closer. It also moves the drops a little farther forward. I find both of these changes comfortable and ride this way all the time. Pictures of the peloton show I'm not the only one.|| |
