Would Shimano XT brakes/shifters fit on a road bike with a Shimano 105 group?
It has been raining hard and the trails near my house are hopelessly muddy, so I've had to resort to riding my road bike from time to time. Riding down in the drops isn't something I care for, so I got to thinking. Could I put a flat bar on my road bike and run Shimano XT M750 STI brakes/shifters? Would V-brake levers work with road-style cantilever brakes? Technically the Shimano 105 brakes on my bike are side-pulls with the cable pulling on one side and not straight from the top the way old-school brakes did ten years ago, before V-brakes.
