Vintage 105 Downtube Shifters to Bar Ends
I'm doing some office wrenching (sitting in my office, wasting time, and thinking about my bike).
I recently picked up an '88 Trek 520 and have decided to convert my Surly Cross-Check to a single speed monster. I love the bar end shifters on my Surly and would prefer them to the downtube shifters on the Trek. Should the modern pods/mounts work with the vintage levers?
The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery.
