Changing over to a flat bar style for my 12 yo son
I'm picking up a 46cm Dave Scott Expert Centurion (yeah the ugly salmon color, its on the list to change) and I want to change bars over to a straight flat bar style handlebar. I had one of these about 6 months ago and he just wasnt' too thrilled with the color or the downtube shifters (I sold it). Once he gets used to the bike I can switch back.
Anyone have a suggestion or two for thumb shifters and brakes for the flat handlebars?
Its a 12 speed Shimano 105 deraileur system and the 105 short reach brakes.
Thanks in advance.
