Don't you just have to flip the RD cable clamp around or something? Look up hubbub, maybe I'm making stuff up.

Shiftmate #1 with a SRAM X9 RD (or similar) would be the combo I'd do with the current shifters and cassette.

hallo! posting to share some small updates on the bike, specifically the tires (compass switchback hill). I ran the bike through my go-to field testing facility (may canyon, little t) and the tire hype is real! talk about smooooth. big volume rules and everything feels awesome. the bike floated over debris, sandy washed-out roads, and filling-rattling broken concrete.

thanks for looking!

Here's the latest iteration of this bike- MAP bars complete with jagwire decaleur for GB28 bag hastily fastened to a basket.

Beatnikmane! I didn't get any names unfortunately but it was a great group. Checker man crushed the route on a damn road bike with pretty tall gearing! Absolute mad man.
The LA Bike Scene (tm) has very distinct groups and styles and the majority of riders yesterday had big tire, bags, full-size boxes of snacks-style which I am very much down with.

In the pic, I can see his skinny tire. Insane!

What is the Jagwire decauleur? A hack or a legit product (a la Berthoud, VO)?

Oh no, I'm just being a smart-ass. If you take a closer look at the photo I just tucked the brake cables behind the GB decaleur rod. I also fastened the lower bag strap around the tombstone and through the basket. This arrangement held up surprisingly well on tough terrain.

Lol. Thanks!

What is the story with the drilled stem? Was that modified or was it manufactured that way?

Sweet bike. I like the drops and Map cockpits equally well.

Thanks for the love! I bought the stem with that Special Custom Feature from a friend. It was originally on a touring bike with canti brakes. It's pretty slick for being mickey mouse'd!

I'm curious how the low trail handles with the MAP bars. Any thoughts?
