First post on the road forum for me- not even sure this is the right place but WTF.
Just fixed up my Gary Fisher SS with some drop bars and levers (looks uber cool IMHO)and wanted your opinion on whether It is enevitable that I will crash in the next few days/weeks?
My problem is that I have never ridden a drop bar and even though It feels great/right/fast/sexy, on the short run I did last night I found myself grabbing for brakes that were not there
Even when I managed to find the pesky drop levers, the new braking "feel" made it very hard for me to judge how hard/soft I should brake
Am I going to learn the hard way and come a cropper or do you think the transition will be fast and painless
