Posted By: eddie_el_nenei just like the fact that i wouldnt have to reach down to shift. you think its worth it?
how much do they go for nowadays ? and how much for the parts in order to get STI going ?
Posted By: SkidMarkBrifters are aesthetically bankrupt.Learn to reach down and grab a gear, it's not that difficult.

Posted By: SkidMarkAll that bike needs is new tires and cork tape. And please take off the pie plate.If you insist on uglifying the bike with brifters, put all those Suntour components together and sell them as a group to someone who is looking for them to rebuild another Trek 1000 that someone converted into a "fixie".The only way to do it right is to replace the entire drivetain including the rear hub, because you'll need a cluster with cog spacing that works with the brifters.
Posted By: Dustintendoyou could also get the rivendell bar end pods and convert your existing downtube shifters to barcons
Posted By: SkidMarkI thought that was the original tape, my mistake. If it's brand new that's good.The pie plate or dork disc is the piece of plastic behind the cluster. Sometimes you can just break it into 2 or 3 pieces and pull them out. Otherwise you have to take the cluster off.
