Converting Trek 7500 FX 9sp ('05) to drop bar. Any problems likely with this plan?
Use Campy Veloce 10 Ergo shifters with JTEK Shiftmate Type II on rear (converts Campy 10 to Shimano 9 cass./derailleur). Campy Ergo left shifter with existing triple crank and front der. (Campy Ergo left ratchets and doesn't index). Two Problem Solver Travel Agents on front and rear V-brakes to solve cable pull issue. Low end drop bar and stem. Cables/housing/bar wrap. I have everything but the Shiftmate and Travel Agents. Total cost will be about $140.00
I want a low end 'cross bike for recreational cyclocross plus commuting.
