New Stuff Coming

Nancy has been modifying her bike for a couple of months now and we are down to the last modifications. She had put Shimano brifters on her ANT mixte back in November. The LBS did a good job with the brifters but they were poorly matched with the bike’s V-brakes. The drops and shifters worked very good but the long-pull brakes and the short-pull levers performed poorly together as you would expect.

The LBS swapped the V-brakes with cantilevers which was a good idea but there is no rear brake stop where the cable stop can be set. The original set up looked like ass but this week a Paul Comp Funky Monkey is enroute to save the day.

Update: Paul Funky Monkey did not save the day. Off to talk with the guys at College Park Bikes for ideas.
