I want to switch from flat bars to road bars on my Trek 7500 hybrid bike.
My 7500 has 3 x 9 Shimano Deore derailleurs, and the rapidfire (pushbutton) shifters. The brakes are direct-pull front and rear. The headset is a threadless 1 1/8 unit.
To keep the seat-to-bar dimension approximately the same, I think a fairly short stem would be smart - maybe 70mm? Perhaps 10 degree up/down too. Obviously will need road bars too.
I'd like to go with bar-end shifters and it looks like the Dura-Ace 9sp bar-end shifters will work fine with my Deore derailleurs.
The levers will probably be Cane Creek as they have a model that works with the direct-pull brakes.
Have I missed anything? Suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.
