Straight Bar to Drop Bar Conversion
I bought a used Miyada Cross frame. My understanding is that this frame was designed for a straight handle bar and that Miyada catgoriezed this frame in the Hybrid family. I have bought a drop bar for this bike and all of the associated hardware before I realized this frame was designed for the straight handle bar. If I put the drop bar on this straight bar frame, will that messes up with the ride of the bike? I mean, will the riding position be messed up? Also, this frame came with a fork that has the logo "koga." Is this fork compactible with my drop handle bar?
As you might be able to tell, I know very little about bicycles geometry and fitting. However, I am very mechanically inclined, so building the bike will not be any issue. The issue is building a bike to fits me well.
Also, I'm not sure if this Miyda is a good platform for touring. Since my purpose is exercise, I might consider making this a fixed gear bike, which will probably be cheaper to build.
