Show Your Vintage MTB Drop Bar Conversions
I know several of you have some really nice drop bar conversions. I finally got around to converting my Univega Alpina Pro. I did a minimalist job on this one, using stuff out of the bin only. The cockpit on this bike was cramped for me, I can already tell its better (riding on the hoods). It was either this or trekking bars, and I have done the trekking bar conversion before, so it was time for something different. I kept the original stem.
For those that thought all of the Univegas in the 1980s were built by Miyata, this one was built in Taiwan, so I am guessing KHS.
Smoked chrome, triple butted cromoly frame, what's not to like? OK, it does have a U-brake, and the frame is not lugged..
Lighting was kind of poor on these pics, I may have to redo them later.
