Maichson Posted April 28, 2018 Share Posted April 28, 2018 Hi All, I recently bought a pre-loved (used) Merida Crossway 900 2014 Model (see link below). I have enjoyed a couple of rides on it, and want to turn it into a Cyclocross/Gravel Hardtail bike. It is very ideal in my opinion and will save me some cash instead of buying an actual Cyclocross/Gravel if the project goes well as I hope. To Note: Bike is a 46 cm I am 5'4" 17 cm hand length (bottom of palm to longest finger) 9 cm palms width (across middle of my palm) Goals To have drop bars so I can several options when riding on different terrains (aerodynamic, upright on the bars, and on the hoods) an retain control on climbs and descents. Retain my 3 x 10 Retain the Hydraulic disc braking system without replacing the brake callipers. Challenges Which drop bars would best achieve the aims of this project? Which dual shifters would best suit this project? (Note, they have to be Hydraulic without replacing existing callipers) Maybe Danny can even do a show on this type of conversion. Thanks guys, look forward to great ideas. https://www.merida-bikes.com/en_int/bikes/cross/cross/2014/crossway-900-363.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
