Used to converted a flat bar commuter bike to drops with STI levers. Works well. I have fat fingers and the initial threading and set up were a little more challenging than I liked, but once it was in place it was easy to adjust especially with the barrel adjuster.
My rear rack stanchion was very close to the original noodle and the travel agent got in its way. I replaced the two stanchions to the seat stays with a single to where the fender attaches to the frame and all is well.Pros:
Cheaper and simpler option than converting brakes to cantilever or long armed dual pulled calipers.Cons:
Not easy to set up if one has fat fingers.
Had to adjust my rear rack stanchions to get around the agent.Would Buy Again:
