I bought a F4 Caffeine in 2009 and I am still not happy with the bike. I often feel the front end is too tall and I am not stretched out enough. I have been trying to sell it, but I haven't been able to find a buyer. I am not going to sell her for next to nothing either.

I was at the bike shop picking up some stuff, and I saw the Salsa Windchipper handle bar. I held it in my hand and I am seriously thinking about tuning my F4 into a drop bar mountain bike. I will keep you updated with the progress.

The list of parts that I am thinking about using:

Salsa Windchipper 42cm
Shimano 105 Shifter 2x9
RaceFace 36 and 24 Chainring
Avid BB7 Brakes
Shimano Deore rear Derailuer
