My CX came with these fitted and they were great while I got used to the bike. However, after a couple of months I'm finding I hardly use them and prefer to be on the drops. From looking at it, it looks like I can just remove the levers and then replace the cable with a continuous run to the brake caliper (Hayes mechanical discs. Am I missing anything or is it that simple?
Main reason for removing them is it means I could fit stuff to the bars for some light touring. Also looks better plus saves a wee bit of weight.
