: Can anyone tell
me what STI Typepush button controls means?

Basically, STI type push buttons sounds like the gear system may not actually be Shimano, which is where STi comes from; Shimano Total
Integration. With STi the gear shift levers were originally mounted as one unit with the brake lever. In recent years Shimano have seperated them again and the gear shifter is a seperate
pod.
Push button, refers to the fact that the gear change is actioned by pushing buttons, one for the thumb which lowers the gear and one for the finger which makes the gear higher. This
is done in incremental steps, so that the gears become indexed, such that if correctly set up the gear lever will precisely select the gear. without any jumping of the chain

Hope it is
of help.
