Can You Mix MTB & Road Shimano Groups?
I'm new here - this is my first post. I've been a regular rider (a few thousand miles/year) for the last 11 years, and rode some before that. I have a question about a new bike I just found.
I'm going to replace my "everyday" ride, a Cannondale H400, with this bike. Basically, I got captured by the price point - just about $100 over the cheapest Titanium frame I know I can buy for a complete bike. I'm thinking about replacing the flat bar with a drop bar, but the grip shifters obviously won't work.
It has Shimano Deore LX derailleurs and A550 road brakes. I'd probably replace the grip shifters with Shimano 105 or Ultegra 9 speed shifters, depending on what I can find.
Would that work with these MTB derailleurs?
