Badger when I converted to flat bar I used 105 calipers and shimano deore v brake levers as my bike shop recommended. I was ripped apart by the mechanic forum on here being told it's impossible BUT this combo worked perefectly for me. My brother though purchased shimano road specific flar bar levers which these days are very reasonably priced

Good to know...I'll start researching again. I hate my brakes on the 7.9 FX, no power, and spongy, no matter how I adjust them. Thanks!

I reverted the conversion back to road bike, and i swapped out the bartape. i will use the flat-bar conversion on another bike project of mine.

Mate, I've got some new ideas for it (crazy ones) but I'm keeping it under my hat for the moment. Funds are the restrictions at the moment. The ideas may not come to fruition.

I understand...yesterday the guys at my LBS asked me: "so, what are the plans for this one...?"
I told them that I'm planning leave it as it is...they just laughed

Thanks. It's sold as a dual sport hybrid. I love just about everything about the bike sans the paint job. I don't know why, but I feel like that shade of blue kind of cheapens the look. Maybe just me though...

I've recently upgraded wheels to Shimano R500, from Cerchi Nisi T Due. Before;



After;





They provided me a total weight loss off nearly 500 grams. Also they have obvious smoothness advantage over the old ones. Got the rims for 60$ as used. Compared to used wheels market, they can be count as free. I will never use any wheel, that is under the entry class (entry such as Shimano R500). They are useless, really.
