    I think you might run in to issues with that crank for off-road use, in that the 144 BCD will limit your smallest chain ring size. Other then that, sounds like an awesome build. Those frames look...

    If you ARE open to new brakes, I would highly recommend switching over to mini-v's. You can use your existing levers, stopping power substantially increases, no more fork shudder, and set up is a...

    With that particular bar, you'd be better off doing everything at once. Road drop brake levers, whatever you plan on doing for shifting, etc.

    You might take a look at these.

    On-One Midge Handlebar

    They're relatively cheap and take bar-end shifters. I was using a pair on a similar bike project for a while. I will say they were a...
