North Road Style Handlebars
It seems to me that most of the new folders come with flat style handle bars! I prefer the more upright riding position that I have with my 1971 Raleigh Twenty! Are Northroad handlebars available that are appropriately sized for the new folders such as Downtubes, Dahons, etc? If not, is there a reason? Is it feasible to install them on said folders?
Re: Northroad Bars on Folders
"it is really a combination of handlebar shape, stem length, and top tube length that determines the riding postion."
This is a valid point, and may be the simple answer to my query! Since I am mostly interested in the DT 8H, I guess my question becomes, would the DT 8H adjust to provide the upright riding position that I prefer?
However, The Northroad bars do have "the look" that I like, so I continue to wonder about mounting the stock DT brake levers and the SA shifter on a set of Northroads! The Nitto Moustache bars on the Hon Solo Special Edition bike really did look good (as did the whole bike) and, with enough adjustment of the HB stem one would not need the additional rise afforded by the Northroads!! It sure is fun to dream!!! ;-)
Thanks for you input!
