I am adjusting a 2nd hand bike and I am not sure how to setup the handlebars and brifters. The bike is a tourer and the previous owner found the ride position a bit long and low and hence moved the brifters more towards the saddle so the hoods are angled up. I also want a more relaxed position so I am going to fit a stem extender. However, I don't find the current position of the brifters to work very well so I am thinking that I will move them back forwards again but I am not sure what the default position relative to the bars is.
I have never ridden a drop handled bike like this before so I am a bit in the dark. If anyone knows of a website that shows how to postion the handlebars (ie rotation in the clamp) and wear on the bar curve to fix the brifters it would be very helpful.
