Does anyone use cross-levers with a handlebar bag? I am concerned about having room for cable routing. I am thinking of Paul cross-levers, as I am using v-brakes and an Ortlieb bag.
I am also considering a new drop bar. I have the stock bar on a 2009 LHT, but when I set the ramps close to level for comfort, the drops are too steep. The Nitto Noodle seems to have a good bend to solve this problem, but I don't want that long of a reach. It looks like the Ritchey Pro Evo Curve might work, but I'm wondering about the oversized clamp area. Any thoughts? Part of the reason I am thinking of cross-brakes is to get in a more vertical position on steep decents for drag and to get over that feeling of going over the top. -Thanks
