I want to use those. I'm aware (through this forum) that the thumb end shifters I have now will not work with out something called Paul's thumbies. They cost quite a bit, and I'm not addicted to my thumbshifters.
Also, I know that my road style brakes have to be replaced.
So my question is - can I replace just my shifters and brakes, or does the whole derailleur/brake system have to be replaced?
Finally, what is the most economical/reliable set of shifters and brakes you would recommend to fit on these bars that would work with my stock cross check?
