General Information
Group-less STI levers, probably from the 5500/6500 timeframe, very similar in design to the ST-5500 (Shimano 105) levers. The main difference to the ST-5500 seems to be that these levers are made for 8-speed shifting systems, while ST-5500 is for 9-speed. The left shifter supports both 2 and 3 chainrings.
