The thing I'm wondering is, currently I've got a flat bar on the bike with cheap Tektro MTB-style levers, and I want to go to a drop bar with hoods and road brake levers (again, like the One Way). Any advice on reliable, comfortable, road-bike like hoods and levers? I can't find the exact Tektro hoods/levers that are on the One Way (OEM, maybe?), and I'm not exactly sure what's what regarding hoods and levers with no shifters (I generally ride a road bike, so I'm more familiar with that, which is why I'd like this bike to feel like a road bike with hoods and drops). While I'm posting, any recommendations for reasonable bars to go with them (not aggressive track-style, but more road-style)?
I know this sounds elementary, but I've never built one of these before. Thanks in advance.
Good call on going with drop bars with road levers and hoods. I started with risers cuz they look cool yeah? Until you go into a headwind for 8 miles.
Went to bullhorns, a little bit better but since I also ride a geared bike I am going with that set up on my fixed.
I plan to have a stem/bar brake w/ levers and hoods and keep the one with bullhorns/stem brake lever for easy switching.
