Wide road bars update

Thanks to those who suggested the Nitto Noodle bars. At first I thought they were not going to look very good on the bike because they were silver and not black. But when I pulled them out of the box I fell in love. They have a nice etching on them that is actually quite attractive. I love the width of the bars (48cm).
We cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created them. A.E.
