I've been toying around with the idea of converting my flat-bar hybrid (which I use for commuting) to drop bars. Primarily because I'd like to press it into service as a winter road bike, as it has full mud-guards. The bike is a Ridgeback Comet, which has a Shimano triple front and 8-speed rear. I've looked around the net, and there seem to be a few considerations and options, and I'm wondering what people think.
These V-brake road levers from Cane Creek are made from 6061 grade aluminium and based on their popular SC5 road levers. these are designed to counter the difficulties associated with pairing drops and linear pull/cable discs on cross/touring bikes.
