£136.41 inclusive of vat is a damned good price and im considering a pair for my 2012 caad 8. What I need to know is, please look at the link provided, is there anything different with them and a set which I could purchase in the UK at CRC for £160 ?

No difference and they are a top company with their service. Bought from them many times and usually delivered in 2-3 days



Buy without worry

Price will be inclusive - wheels normally cost £5 or so to ship so cannot see shifters costing more than that

Exchange rates on cards are also terrible and you'll get a fee for buying in euros normally.

Is there a difference between the left and right - as in won't it just click up and down until which ever derailleur is attached hits the limit screw, be that after 2 3 or 10 taps?

MTB ones with indicator windows are specific but I always thought road werent?

Or am i completely wrong?

Yes the shifters are completely different left and right - but everyone the world over has them the same the left controlling the front. the BRAKES are normally installed the other way around in Europe to the UK, but that's purely a case of isntallation, there's obviously nothing different between the brake part of an STI.
