Hey, Goth, I love this bike. I have a really similar bike (Serotta cross set up as my sole drop bar, all road bike). I barely ride road anymore though and your flat bar build has me thinking I could retool the Serotta like that and commute on it and ditch my commuter bike. We look similarly proportioned to our bikes based on your seat height and drop.

How did you like the ride when it was set up like that?

the ride was fine but my main gripe was that i used thomson trail bars with zero sweep (because my dumb ass got a good deal on them). ymmv but it was real uncomfortable after like an hour in the saddle.

Interesting. I have some swept ti Thomson's that might do me alright. Might have to try this. I could certainly use the scratch from moving my commuter along.
