Drop bars question
No, but Hope have a road bike that uses SRAM cable shifters, which connect up to a twin master cylinder unit which fits just below the stem. The rest of the system is standard Hope kit.
I saw this at the London Bike show at Excel yesterday. It was sheer bike porn!Posted 5 years agoSamMember

Sam – your article needs to note that with Shimano road shifters you need to use a 9 spd Shimano MTB mech (or a road mech if you prefer of course) and most definitely not a 10 spd MTB mech. I know that’s what you meant but it didn’t get into the last draft.
Also I found the Shimano cross mech (CX-70) worked a treat on am MTB crank (outer and middle only) and 105 double shifter – and at £25 it’s not too bad pricewise.Posted 5 years ago
