I am now commuting on a Cross Check I built up (Nexus Hub Question (x-post))
but I am having a problem with hand pain on the drop bars I installed. I have tried making different adjustments but I cannot get comfortable.
I come from primarily a mountain bike background so I was considering a handlebar that is similar in design to a MTB bar. My question is how will such a bar integrate with the geometry of the Cross Check? Is it a big deal or is it just different? At this time I have my saddle (Brooks Standard) at aproximately the same level as my drop bar.
Also, I have heard great things about the On-One Mary bar. Opinions?
