I have a 2000 Specialized Expedition Elite (mtb frame, setup like a hybrid) which I am planning to upgrade to make it more trail ready. I used to use it for mostly road riding, but now that I have a road bike I'm going to make it mtb only.
It came with riser bars, which I like, but I'm wondering if I should put flat bars on it for XC mountain biking. I understand riser bars are more of a downhill thing, but
will flat bars really gain me any advantages on the trail?
