Bar and other replacement
I am working on a Fuji Supreme.
It has a Nitto B111 road bar, Dia-Compe brake levers and stem mounted shifters. It has Dia-Compe caliper brakes. The levers have too much tarnish on them and I am not comfortable with a road bar.
I would like to replace the bar and levers as inexpensively as possible, with may be a straight bar or a pursuit or moustache bar.
What brake levers will I need to go with each choice and what is a good inexpensive choice? Not the steel Pyramid kind but a little better.;-)
Do V brake levers work with caliper brakes?
Is the pursuit bar the same dimensions as a cut off road bar? Looks like the ends are a little longer in a real pursuit bar.
