    Tressostar orange cotton bar tape, with a few coats of amber shellac. It used to be more reddish, but the shellac has faded and it's more orange-y now.

    Nice!

    I've got a set of Soma Sparrow bars under the tree that I'm going to put on my '89 Rockhopper. I'm hoping for a hand position similar to what you've got here. I've got drop bars on it now, but I got an itch to play with its personality a bit.

    The Titec bars are pretty comfortable. They feel like a cross between porteur bars and MTB bars (with lots of sweep).

    Here's the latest version of my daily commuter which is fully-loaded with "Friday Gear*", sorry about the pic quality...



    *Friday Gear = a full weeks worth of work clothes headed for the laundry; could also be called Stinky Gear! lol

    Sweet lookin' ride.

    Here is my commuter at play, on a 44 mile unpaved ride on Saturday
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    It's a spoke card given out to all the people who rode to a "Texas Independence Day" party earlier this year. Several of my friends will do spoke cards for celebrations like that. The rest of the cards I've collected are on my FG bike.

    I'm digging that stem on the Raleigh...anyone know where I can get one like it? Much cleaner than a stack of spacers. Velo Orange only had silver with a negative rise.

    Haha that's great, Reddit always ruins everything for me, in that I know things before everyone else does.
