    Mooto X monstercross?

    I am strongly considering converting my Mooto X to a drop bar , sort of monstercross bike.
    I think this style would make it the most useful as part of my bike collection, and I would ride it more, which is the idea
    Anyone done this? Pics, feedback, etc??
    thanks

    If the bike fits you with a flat bar, wouldn't a drop bar have you way too stretched out? Top tubes are shorter on drop bar frames.

    I would be changing the stem. Also, when youre riding in the drops you should be more stretched out compared to a normal mtb flat bar position.

    In the drops, yes. On the hoods, no.
