New Midge bars - need component help!
My eight year old son and I will be riding BRAG on our Trek T100 tandem for the second time this year. We loved the ride last year, and the bike performed well for us. The only change I want to make before the ride this year is swap the flat handlebars to some On One Midge bars. 400+ miles with almost no variety in hand positions is not my idea of fun.
Currently, our tandem has 400 SRT FFS grip shifters, with Shimano Deore LX front and rear derailleurs. I understand that I can't use the grip shifters with the Midge bars. What kind of shifters should I use? I'm leaning towards bar end shifters, but I'm open to other ideas. I also know that I'm going to need to replace the cables and housings. Is there anything else that I'm overlooking?
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
