drops on a mtb frame?
Hey, first time posting on the 'cross board - so bear with me.
So, I've got this 02 cannondale badboy, and its a prety sweet bike built on the caad3 frame. however, I do all my riding in the city of pittsburgh, which has lots of hills, cracked pavement, MUD. its a far cry from a mountain or smooth as glass asphalt.
that said, can i put drops on my bike? will the geometry work? -- Can i use sti shifters? Or would bullhorn (like TT) bars with barcons and aero levers be better? I dont get a whole lot out the straight bar since I dont get very many hand positions out of it.
-- also, can i put a 700c wheelset on that bike? That should raise the bb height from the ground right? Its on 26x1 hutchinson's right now. They roll fast, but they are no good for bad streets etc. I might just go back to my 1.5 fatboys.
lots and lots questions. any help is appreciated! Thanks. -nrs
