Racing cross with flat bars?
What do you guys think about flat bars and cross bikes?
I know it's banned from UCI races, but I see them once in awhile in amateur race photos.
I got a used Surly Cross Check that came with a Shimano XT group, thumb shifters, and risers. I feel quite comfortable on them, but I've read that I'm really missing out since I only have one hand position.
I'd like to try it, but, I'm happy with what I have now. I'm not sure if I'll like it, and it would be a bit of an investment if I were to experiment with it.
