I noticed that shimano now sells brifters either normal or for small hands. Does anyone know where to look or how to identify them? It was NBD for me yesterday and the first thing I noticed was the limited room between bar and shifter. See photo.

The shimano website shows a small hands hydraulic brake version, but I don't see a rim brake version.

Hi, check the product number on the brifters. Should be hidden somewhere under the hoods: https://bike.shimano.com/en-US/product/ ... 7000.html

Just in case you didn't know: All brifters have reach adjust as well. Check it out in the corresponding dealer manual: https://si.shimano.com/#/en/search/Seri ... &type=ROAD

From the instructions I read it appears this spot should be a screw. It looks like it may be something proprietary. Need to dig through more of the pdf files.

n/m. I figured it out. Page 54 of this manual: https://si.shimano.com/pdfs/dm/DM-RADBR01-06-ENG.pdf is the answer. Thank you for pointing me in this direction and the help.
