New levers & changers question
edited August 2010
I have a Giant FCR2 with flat bars
I would like to put a drop handlebar and STI type levers/changers
The bike has a triple front & 9sp cassette
How easy would it be to change over & approx how much to do it?
Thanks in advance!
Drop bars - starting from £25
Levers - I assume you are running Sora Groupset, you can pick up the Sora levers for around £150 or you can get Tiagra (I suggest you do, you can read many reasons why all over the web) for around £200. You will probably need new cables at around £40 in total and handlebar tape for around £10.
Not too difficult
Trek Madone 3.5 (RS80s, Arione)
Trek Madone 3.1 (Upgraded)
Ribble TT Bike
Trek Mamba (Garry Fisher Collection)
cheers for that
Will start to do some research!
If it's the right size for you with flat bars, it will most likely be significantly too long with drops.
