STI - why so expensive this year?
These things have never been cheap, but I'm gobsmacked at the prices being asked this year. Ribble want £180 for a set of 105 shifters. They seem to have jumped up about 50-70% on last year's prices. Single speed is looking more and more attractive. I think Mr Shimano can put his STI's where the sun doesn't shine, I won't be buying replacements if mine break.
