    Yes, they can be converted. I went the other direction: my old Panasonic had stem shifters and I converted it to bar-end.

    You may want to give the barcons a chance. While I like my bike with...

    I have the Shimano 5800 version of this bike and I highly recommend it. I can only imagine that the 6800 version is even better: Kestrel Evoke 2.0

    It's $100 more than the Immortal Ice (which I...

    I commute year round, but I rarely ride recreationally in sub freezing temps. I enjoy riding, but it helps with the motivation when it's cold if I have somewhere to go.

    I did ride about 19 miles...

    Had a bit of a melt off over the weekend, so there was lots of sheet ice on the pavement this morning. 19 degrees and pretty humid so it felt colder than what the thermometer read. In fact, it was so...

    I didn't vote because I'm somewhere between "Yes" and "No".

    "Yes" in the fact that up until four years ago my wife and I had three cars. Her little car she'd use for commuting, our big Buick we'd...

    Holy cow, I remember Flat Cat! IIRC I think you guys frequently played out at Dakota Territory as well.
