Another question from the uneducated (Azzurri Tigre).

Hey guys.
Simple one for you. I have an Azzurri Tigre which has the gear changers intergrated into the brake levers.

What is this system referred as?

Thanks in advance for the education.

It is another form of STI, (Shimano Total integration) slang for your lever's is "Brifter's" (brakes/shifter's combo for road bikes. MtB's would be called "integrated" lever's/shifters. But they are also STI if Shimano
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"

Keeping mind that SRAM, MicroShift, Sunrace, Campagnolo, and ? offer integrated brake/shifter levers also, that are NOT STI. They are all referred to a BRIFTERS.

Sunlight and many others, offer MTB style.
