Ok guys, i've decided to attempt to build my own bike. I have all parts for my frame with the exception of shifters and derailleurs.
Here is my question, being a new roadie I have only used "brifters." However on my first build I would like to start from the begining and use either downtube shifters or bar end shifters.
I'm open to suggestions. I don't have a preference myself, just polling the experienced wrenches.
thanks in advance for any advice.
