    As stated you can convert, however brifters are expensive so make sure you know what expenses you are up for. Bar end shifters are pretty easy to use really.

    Sure the car driver is at fault but If I was that truck driver I would have seen that coming and been on the brakes hard MUCH sooner.

    Jeremy is your typical English insufferable Pratt.

    I'd say that the post you have is of "Standard" setback of 25mm. Depending on the diameter of the post you should be able to find seat posts with around 40mm of setback.

    I don't think that the frame is too small for you necessarily. Just that the head tube is too short. Maybe a MTN bike stem is in order with enough length and plenty of rise.
