So as I see it, I have two options: swap out and get a CrossRip (wanted that and have had remorse for months) or swap the flat bar for CrossRip bar on the 7.4 FX. IF we assume selling the FX and buying CrossRip = outfitting FX with the CrossRip handle bars (brakes, shifters, etc): what would you do?
I also have 7.4 and ride it a lot. Like you when rding again the wind I feel like a giant sail but, it refuse to not ride when it is windy (I live in Kansas) and I think I have gained significant leg strength over the summer. So, my solution is n + 1, I will pickup my new road bike on Tuesday.

I plan on riding my 7.4 on gravel, MUPs and shorter rides during the week.
