Updating shifters on mountain bike


While recuperating from the broken wrist, Tuckie rode a mountain bike with flat handlebars, and got used to having all the controls on the bars.

While the road to shipping was certainly longer and bumpier than the company wanted, they started shipping units to customers last month.

It fit my wife Tuckie perfectly, and was her road bike.

We went on some fun short rides, and she never did longer rides or group rides on it.

I wanted the light weight and speed of a road bike, just with flat handlebars.

He said don’t try to convert the old road bike, as it would be a money pit, and would require a different axle and derailleurs, and I’d never find the right size parts to do the job.

I also put on platform pedals, which Tuckie wants to use.
