The rest of the parts finally arrived to finish the front end. Nashbar trekking bar and Nashbar natural cork tape, Soma tall quill to threadless riser (Phatatude, thanks for the idea), Performance Team Forte 100mm stem w/8 degree rise, and Performance Team Forte mountain brake levers. The bike is much more comfortable to ride because of the multiple hand positions available and handles more like a traditional road bike. With the original handlebars, hand position was just behind the headtube and now my hands are well in front even when riding in the upright, close position on the bars. It is nice to stretch out a bit in the wind and also have some leverage when climbing by placing my hands on the sides of the bar.
I'm done for now. . .A guy I know says he has a un72 bottom bracket. . . .
