Hi everyone, new here. I want to install drop bars to my hybrid (Supercycle Solaris) because the headwinds are killing me.
I think I know what I'm doing... all it really takes is a drop bar with the same middle diameter as my risers (25.4mm), put on some Tektro RL520s for the V-brake, maybe a pair of clip-on thumb shifters, then wrap some bar tape and I'm done right?
The thing is, I asked about this at a few shops. One shop thinks it's a bizarre project that might or might not work. One shop thinks I'm crazy. The rest of the shops all seem kind of puzzled. This guy tried it on another bike and it seems to work for him: http://www.ifp.uiuc.edu/~smallik/cyc...enueDrops.html
What are your opinions? Have anyone tried this before? Thanks in advance.
