Hi all
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 :)

    If it's the right size for you with flat bars, it will most likely be significantly too long with drops.
