Putting a straight bar on a Fairlight Strael?
« on: June 26, 2019, 11:36:26 pm »
Hello, I love riding bikes, but I'm not a gear-head, like some of you, and that's why I'm here to get your input ( :

I love a steel-frame bike for their absorption of bumps (I live in a city and use my bike to commute to neighboring VA and to do some light weekend touring).   One of the best out there is the Fairlight Strael, but for my city riding (and my lower back) I prefer a more upright riding position, not the drop bars they're designed for.

So would the geometry/comfort of their frame be ruined with a straight bar?  And what of the shifting components? 

Thanks,
Don
