Cockpit Setup - new to drops
I'm building up a Spec tri-cross frame to be my first roadbike. You may be saying it's not even a roadbike at this point but I've not ever had a road bike before so i wanted this to be a comfy frame i could work on getting used to. I do a few triathlons through the summer and decided to get this frame as the slicked-up 8 speed mtb was not really cutting it.
So, i have got some drop bars, shifters and a stem to fit on and wondered what the tips are for setting up he cockpit? From past experience i like being on the hoods but want to make sure i'm doing it right to encourage me to drop down onto the lowers when bombing downhill etc.
Any thoughts gratefully received.
