In your opinion, what's the best way to install drop bars on a bike with a Pinion gearbox, in particular the C1.12.
Some of the options I'm aware of:
- shifter on bar end
- split bars with shifter next to the stem
- a stubby accessory mount attached to the fork.
- the Cinq Shift:R Road kit, listed on cinq.de for a lovely 700 euro and possibly not even out of the kickstarter phase yet.
The following links are about the Cinq shifter:
Also of great interest is the link below, which lists various ways to install a Rohloff shifter on a drop bar, the Rohloff shifter being not entirely unlike the Pinion shifter. They're not identical, though. Cinq has more finished products for Rohloff and there appear to one or two other manufacturers that produce shifters for Rohloff (but not for Pinion).
