Can anyone tell me how to tell if my left hand Shimano Sora STI lever will be able to work with a triple chainset? I don't really want to change the complete drive system if it wont work and expect there is an easier way to find out. Thanks.

    Roll the hood back from the handlebar end and look for the model number then check this out on Shimano Europe,

    Also triple levers usually have 4 clicks, so 2 to shift between rings and two for "triming" - you will only get all of these clicks if not connected to the front mech if it has been set up on a double. Double only shifters get 2 clicks I think.

    Or, I think, but am not sure that all Sora would be triple - but again, check Shimano Europe
