Hi, am miles from a bike shop so can't look for myself.

How do shift up through the gears, do they work in the same way as 105, ultegra and Dura, or are they like Sora.

Thanks in advance

i think theyre like 105 etc, ie 2 levers at the front. I thought only sora had the campagesque paddle at the side. Are you able to look at a shop website to confirm eg CRC, ribble etc

Tiagra is pretty similar to 105 (not the latest version) - just different finish in many cases - outside lever to shift up, inside for down.

Thanks for the replies, I thought that they worked like that (and that Sora was the odd one out with a paddle) just wanted to be sure before I start searching for a pair. Need some 9 speeders so Tiagra, or older 105/ultegra will do. Don't want Sora as have first generation of 600-Ultegra 8 speeds on another bike and like the way they work.
