For folks who use Shimano components, that would be the STI (Shimano Total Integration) brake/shifter (aka, brifter) levers.

Campagnolo came out with it's version of integrated shift & brake levers shortly after Shimano and they're commonly referred to as Ergo (Ergopower) shifters or levers. Sachs licensed the Ergo system from Campy for a few years back in the mid 90's as well.

Sachs was acquired by SRAM back in '97 and exited the road bike component market shortly thereafter. They jumped back in with both feet in 2006 with their version of STI/Ergo: DoubleTap.

So, if you have Shimano you have STI, Campy = Ergo and SRAM = DoubleTap.

Pretty amazing to think how high-end bicycles can end up costing more to acquire than a slightly used BMW R-Series sport bike....

Nice ride though...

Sweet stuff and a very comfy ride, I'm sure. We've got Campy Ergos on all of our road bikes and tandems as well, about 1/2 9 speed and 1/2 10 speed. The only bike that I'm running Record on is our Calfee tandem... and most of that was bought second hand off of Ebay.

The closest I've gotten to carbon wheelsets is a set of Topolino AX3.0-Ts that we use on the tandems. They use a 30mm deep aluminum rim with composite hubs and a hybrid carbon & kevlar spoke network built up in two halves. Their insanely lightweight at 1,450 grams given that they're intended for use on tandems that weigh upwards of 300lbs - 380lbs full loaded with two adults. Reliability hasn't been as good as advertised, imagine that... But, warranty and support has been very good if you ignore the shipping costs. Our other "exotic" wheels include what are now a fairly-well dated set of Campy Eurus G3s, a set of Rolf Prima Vigor tandem wheels and some other conventional wheelsets that I've built up over the years, including some really old Sun Tour Superbe Pro 32t hubs laced to some Mavic GL330 tubbies.

I think some of our brother Pelicans would faint if they knew how much money can get tied up in the bicycle stuff. I sometimes simply shake my own head in disbelief when I think too much about it. But, hey, it's still cheaper than a lot of other hobbies.

here's the one that gets most of the riding duty.
Lemond Maillot Jaune, before Lemond was bought up by Trek.
Bought the frame & CF fork set, but put Chorus 10spd Ergo on it, with a Record headset, Ti seatpost, Mavic wheelset, Speedplays, and EC90 bars. Sweet ride.
Steel is real (but ti really gives me a cycling woody!)

Here is my 1996 Cannondale M300 purchased new at the Nürnberg PX. I rode this bad boy a lot in Germany, and the last time I looked in that purple bag I think there was still some DM change in there. Now it gets light duty at the park riding with my son on his bike.

You can tell I am hard core by the kickstand.

Not that my wife working at a Trek\Fisher shop has anything to do with my recommendation at all but I've heard great things about Fisher 29'ers And if you really want the CF bling, there is the new Superfly 100 this year. Its a full-suspension all-carbon 29'er @ 24 lbs with pedals.

Ok Gang;

Need some advice, I am in the Military and need to stay in Shape can't run anymore knees are getting bad. My Orthopedic Doctor recommends that I ride a bike! Here is the question; Would I be better off with a mountain bike vs road bike or is their something in between & what would be a good bike to start out on.

Unless you're wanting to do dirt (technical singletrack not recommended for bad knees) you should check out the Trek FX series or equivalent. They will be the most comfortable yet still fairly fast due to 700cc (29") road style wheels. They are available with disc brakes and usually have flat bars and a suspension seat post.

I looked at their web site and they show the Trek FX series from 9.19.99 to 2,619.99 would you go the high end or the basic model ? And are their any other brand that I should look at
