    If you lived here three years you should know your way around

    When you come in the fall, email, perhaps my husband and I can meet up for a ride around town to see sites.

    I covet RiverCities cycle cam.

    The device around her neck is a reciever for the invisible fence...terriercam would be a hoot.
    Get her on the way via UPS and we'll make it happen :-)

    I do like the grips that are included with the bar ends. They are touted to provide an excellent support position to help relieve that pesky ulnar wrist/elbow/thumb bone going dead syndrome. I have mine positioned nearly horizontal...in parallel with the seat angle.

    If I needed a mirror your set up would fit the bill.

    The pic I posted earlier (blue 7.6 FX) is MorganRaiders bike....not mine. The GC3s I recieved from Amazon are the same as in that pic. I thought i was gonna get the smaller ones like WCoast or Sixty Fiver (sorry, I cannot locate the post/thread) installed.

    Ergon bar ends and grips available at Amazon. Sold via BikeSomeWhere dot com. Mine order was delivered within a week. Others have beeen less fortunate with this online vendor.

    http://www.amazon.com/s.html/ref=bl_...01&brand=Ergon

    I entered a search for Ergon GC3 but did not look at all available Ergon products or I might have selected a less bulky version.

    Okay, if i use the grip with barend as shown in the pics, i won't be able to use my mirror bcz the barend will take up the space in the handbar where the mirror goes into...hope i am right on this.

    Mine are the Large size - It has do with the PAD for palm.


    I also like having the bar ends more vertical so I can rest my hands on the end of palm pad and the bar end as if you are shaking someone's hand. This position simulates what a road biker might do "resting on the hoods". Another good hand position for me to wrap fingers totally around vertical part of bar-end. I will post some pics later on to show what I am talking about.

    Here's how I did mine - using regular bar ends. Just slide the handgrips in a little tighter, mount the bar ends, and then mount the mirror. (mirror turned around for picture clarity)

    I don't know how I would mount the mirror with that new style.

    I use my mirror A LOT!
