Or will I ripe and ripe then rot and rot?
Considering options for the top end of a brand-spankin'-new MuXl Sport '08:
Option 1. $32 Aber Hallo! + $55 Ergon GC3
Option 2. $32 Aber Hallo! + stock Ergon grips + $40 Ergon GC3 bar ends
Option 3. stock bar + stock Ergon grips + $15 Titec L-bends + $6 Lizard skins
Option 4. $32 Aber Hallo! + stock Ergon grips + $20 Origin-8 Bullhorn bar sawed in half + $6 Lizard skins
Yes, bullhorn cut in two at the midpoint. Each half locked in place by the Aber Hallo!.
- Could leave a space for the Aber Hallo! QR lever between the halves allowing tight quick fold
- Could easily mount stock grips, grips shift and brake levers
- Could separate bar halves for easier suitcase packing
- It's rad
- Potential early death
Maybe to strengthen the cut I could put grip lockrings and/or barend plugs on either side of it.
Anybody done this (and lived to tell a tale)?
Side question: Should I pay to have a documented preride mechanic check and active the Dahon "lifetime frame warranty"? I can tighten my own spokes.
