Hello, I'm building up a Soma Saga. right now it is equipped with 8 speed Ultegra bar end shifters, XT rd, 44/29 coda double crankset, mini v brakes, 105 aero levers, and regular drop bars. A friend of mine suggested bull horn handle bars with bar end and interrupter brake levers. Almost a tri set up without the elbow pads and areo bars. I rarely use the the drops - Any wisdom on handle bars?
If type of touring is a factor, I do the Blue Ridge Parkway, and want to do the GAP, C&O towpath, as well as some shorter trips in coastal NC and SC.
Thanks for your help.
