Can anyone direct me to 8 spd sti shifters? I have '97 fuji w/ 105 shifters. The rt. shifter is worn and needs to be replaced. Sora is the only 8 spd option now. Anyone who knows where I can get replacements, I'd appreciate it. - julia

About a year ago I found an 8 spd. RSX still around retail through them. Have your LBS double-check the QBP catalog. I thought you could still find the 8 spd. RSX, just not the 7 spd., retail.

I picked up a pair of RSX 8's for my son's bike here:

Looks like OEM parts--the shifters are in plastic bags, but no cables, stops, etc. and of course no box.

He's in the Philipines, but $58 shipped, and they took about a week to arrive. Not *quite* as nice as 105 8-speed, but not at all bad.
