Thinking of putting together something a little quicker than my 29er for longer rides but not comfortable with road bikes yet so I was thinking of building a cyclocross style bike from a hybrid .

Came across this Reid Urban X2 .

What do you think of drop bars and STI levers on that . Might need to change the tektro calipers for BB7s . I have a drop bar and stem that should do the job ,would just need to buy different calipers if the pull is not suitable for the levers .

Or should I wait and save up for a Giant Revolt or similar ?.
