My bad. I guess you bought the frameset rather than the complete bike which comes with bar-end shifters.

ahhhh yes. I bought the frame used with Ultegra 6500 and gradually upgraded and added things. But going from bar end to sti is pretty east. Sti is for sure more efficient in shifting than bar end IMO

Gorgeous. Been considering a surly. How easy was the swap to sti levers?
