The drop bars were not the setup of choice for my wife. I figured that was going to be the case and had a set of Nitto Albatross bars and NOS Specialized dirt drop stem on hand and ready to go. The grips and levers took a bit of time to get together, but the finished product looks pretty darn good in my opinion.
The only other thing swapped out so far was the pedals, as with the drops, clips and straps are not here thing at the moment. The luggage is in the design phases and fenders may show up before the next winter rains. I entertained the idea of a 650b conversion, not much to gain for her so we are going to hold off.
This is a fantastic bike, I wish you could still walk into a shop and buy something like this off of the rack for a reasonable price.
