OMG, that's brilliant. I might just imitate you. It combines the best of all worlds. Trigger shifters are really better than brifters, and they're less expensive, too. And you placed them perfectly.

Super bike, Korina. I haven't seen this picture of it. My B17 is good right out of the box. Some need to break them in, and some don't.

But the tiniest bit of soda can might be adequate and easier to use. I was impressed the first time I cut one up. Scissors go through the material as if it's paper.
