Default Re: NOOB ALERT: Questions for starting out..

I think the road bike is fine with MTB or cruiser handlebars. Keep those thin tires pumped up and your OK.
I know you have the pull bars attached to the road bike brakes that allow you to brake with yours hand up on the cross bar. However, the pull bars do not provide full braking power that allows you to avoid accidents at 25 mph.
