I was almost ready to pull the trigger on a B17 for my new LHT. I swapped the drop bars for moustache bars last week (love them) and I'm wondering if the B17 is suitable for the slightly more upright position. I kept the stock stem, contrary to the advice to do otherwise with these bars, because I don't mind the reach to the curves.
I've already replaced the stock saddle with a Specialized BG we had from another bike, but I don't think it's going to work out on this bike and I'm ready to get a new saddle.
Does anyone ride the LHT with this set-up on a B17?
BTW, I rode the LHT 110 miles this weekend and I absolutely LOVE it.
