I'm looking to convert my bike to flat bar, but want to use my GRX crankset and front derailleur and 105 R7000 rear. Are there any flat bar shifters that would make this work? Ideally I'd like to keep the GRX crankset for the lower gears to save my knees.
I have Shimano SL-RS700 noted to work with R7000 derailleur based on Shimano's own compatibility this here
MicroShift SL-A11 thumb shifters should work as well if you wanted an alternate option?
(I've got these on my flat bar conversion and really like them)
Another quick question. Will the M8000 brake levers work with the 105 r7020 calipers, or will there be any performance loss compared to using mtb flat mount calipers?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
