A couple of steps back.
My GF's new bike is being delayed so with the Olympics coming I thought I'd go back to the plan of setting it up with trigger shifters as an interim solution.
Crankset issue sorted thanks to a square taper version of the existing one. FD set up after much confusion and the removal of a ramping pin. Many thanks to Dammit for the last bit of clarity.
As it standing it's heading straight for anti. Especially once it gets it's neon green grips back.
However, I shall see how it rides and once I get it back the drops and bar ends will go on. Ultimately the more I think about it the more I like the idea of using TA cranks with a 1x9 set up and a closer ratio for the city. Then when I do need the extra gears switch the chainrings round for a touring double.
First things first though; (I) build as is, (II) drops/bar ends, and (III) build wheelset.
