New bars progress (4/4)
New bars progress (4/4)
The experiment with the dropped bullhorn pursuit bars has ended, with the conclusion being that they are entirely impractical for city riding. To use the brakes you have to stretch out on the bars, the effect of braking pushing you further forward and being quite uncomfortable. This position is also not suited to looking around / behind you as your head gets obscured by shoulders and rotates in the wrong plane. They might "just" work brakes up on the flats near the stem, but then that sorta negates the purpose of the bullhorns. So the new idea is to turn this bike into some sort of "light shopper", with a more upright riding position and a large basket or porteur rack over the front. The gear will be lowered correspondingly to help it grind up the hills of Edinburgh. I made a swap on this nice north road-style bar, late of a Raleigh Twenty shopper bike and am mounting it "upside down" with the existing bar-end brake levers to see what I come up with. I am liking it already. Only the finest Italian lemonade can will do when constructing a shim to fit the 25mm bar into the 26mm Cinelli track stem!
