I am wanting to try a handlebar swap on my Surly LHT. My big hesitation is that I am not sure if I will like whatever I try better than the drops currently installed. I also think the drops might be what I will need on longer distance rides, with the other options (not sure what yet) working better for commutes and cruising. Is there a way to leave everything mounted on the drops (bar end shifters, brake levers, tape) and to quickly swap out the new bars which will also have their own shifters, brake levers, and tape/grip on them?
I guess I'm looking for a way to just remove the drop bar, put on an alternative, and not have to re adjust all of the brakes and derailleurs. Is there some system that would allow me to quickly sever and reattach the brake and shifter cables near the handlebars so that I could just use whichever bars I needed for that particular ride? Does this even exist? I wasn't able to search because I have no idea what to search for.
I'm new to this whole thing.
