Hi,

My wife just got a Genesis Equilibrium 00 (white). She loves the bike, but just saw my 105 and Ultegra levers on other bikes and she now doesn't like the Sora levers (cables everywhere) I also noticed the brakes are very stiff.

So my question is, can I put 105 levers on there, baring in mind they are 10spd and her Sora is 9spd?

Grateful for the advice.

Max

In a word, no.

You'll also need to change the cassette, chain and probably the chainset to make it go 10-speed.

You've only just bought it and she's not happy? Tell her to quit moaning and start riding! That's what it's for.

(though I would try to get the brakes working better)

Didn't realise until reading this that the cables protrude from the housing on my 9-speed 105 STI levers on my bike like the Sora. While perhaps not as aesthetically pleasing as the current 10-speed model never been a concern at all.
