Flipped the stem, put my backup shimano pedals, tossed on some speed king tires, and raised the seat post.


I just need a new chain and I’ll be in business (chain is cut short for the gearing I want (42t front, 11-27t cassette). I may need a different rear derailleur, but I’m waiting to see. This setup makes riding in the drops just more natural. I’ve been watching too many In the Crosshairs episodes (drops not tops).
