Bars are wrecked, including left SLR hood. Still functions crudely, frame seems ok, time to upgrade!
It's all 105 Friction. I know the basics, such as housing, stops at DT shift point, new bars with brifter set, and 130mm rear wheel.
Do I need a new RD? This seems to be where the price point gets steep. I don't feel I 'need' 20 gears on this bike, if that includes 200 bucks more in price tag and maintanance, etc.
What would be the poorman's way of going about this?
