So I just picked up a new singlespeed is a dawes sst al http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/..._al_carb_x.htm
My goals is simply to just ride around my neighborhood, maybe to work on some nice sunny days and when we visit my in-laws, and maybe in and around town on Sunny days...so I wanted something decent but not nothing to fancy...I did a lot of research and I thought this had a lot of good features, aluminum frame vs. steel, carbon for, double cnc wheels, formula hubs and brakes, etc.
I want to swap some stuff out, including powder coating the frame...but the first order of business is to swap out the handle bars for bullhorns and I want to do different brake handles...Im not sure what sizes and how I tell, so I was hoping that someone might be able to help me out with how to determine the size of bars I need and if I can just use any sort of brake levers and just cut down the cables?
...here is what I am thinking...
would something like this work?
Thanks for any help
