I'd like to put different drop bars on my Cross-Check, only I have no idea what to do
So I've decided I'm not a fan of the Salsa Bell Lap. The drops are too deep and the shape of them makes the hoods lower and kind of tipped forward so the reach is a little too much for me.
I'd like to replace them with bars that aren't as deep and with a shorter reach.
I've never done anything like this before. I'll be able to transfer the bar-end shifters to the new bars, as well as the brakes/hoods, correct? I don't even know how the brake lever / hood system attaches to the bars.
So I guess what I need from y'all is some suggestions for bars, and some steps on how to make the swap. I was thinking of asking my LBS, but I'd like to try doing some of this stuff myself, and I know my selection of bars is much larger online.
Thanks for any help.
