I'm in the planning stage on a Century/Metric only bike, no tours for this one. I have a lower back issue so drop handlebars are a no go. I'm thinking bull horns with aeros. The bull horns will be rotated back a tad for a little more upright position. I'm not a speed demon, just the "little" engine that wants too.
Brifters or barend shifters? Pros and cons? I'm thinking barends for versatility and ease of operation.
