Hey everybody,(I should had titled this "What changes should I make?"....I know what I should do with it. lol)
I just bought this Riv Rom 24 in. locally and got a deal on it.
However, it has Shimano Ultegra shifters (I don't like), a triple/9.
Looong stem and wiiiide bars that aren't even close to fitting me.
I would like to set this bike up up with more of a retro vibe (friction) and change the bar/stem/seat for an appropiate fit.
What changes would you suggest for form and function?
(I ride locally 3-7 miles a day)
I am open to any input, ideas and questions welcomed.
Here is the current components.
Shimano 105 group set
27 speed (triple)
Nitto 65 seat post
Specialized road saddle
Ritchey Pro bars (235 grams)(wide bars long stem)
Araya RC540 wheels
Ruffy Tuffy tires
Shimano Ultegra shifters/brake
