    i've noticed the trend (and subsequent redesign) of STI shifters to accommodate a more vertical position on the handlebar. are there any good articles or can you offer any advice on setting up a proper STI position?

    i am using the slightly older DA 9-speed STIs, ST-7700, so they are not as rounded as the new ST-7800.

    thanks...

    The proper position is the one that feels the best. Set them up without bar tape, then get up on a trainer or just sit on the bike leaning against a wall. Move them around until you like where they are.
