    Thanks Richard. Yeah' it's been quite the process and still not done yet. The Brake boss on the DS front fork is a little mangled, I was able to get the brake cantilever on there but I will have to bring it in and replace it. Should be not all the difficult and probably close to free. My giant dealer is cool like that.

    I hate to say it, but that looks ridiculous. However, if it works for you, go with it! Ride that thing hard (hehe that's what she said!... I'm soo immature).

    Edit: From my electronics knowledge (I'm not only active on this forum, y'know! I have another favorite forum, where I have over 2,000 posts), I know why your iPhone camera performed so poorly. It is because you took the picture in a poorly lit area and the image sensor in the phone performs very poorly in low light situations.

    You probably missed it - It is winter set up. To ride a bike in snow is not very normal..right? How the bike can look normal for abnormal riding?

    To me every detail and part of this bike is seems to be very logical.

    Does it work now? When an electronic device comes in contact with water, you are supposed to make sure it's off and then put it in uncooked rice (it draws the moisture out) for 3-5 days. DO NOT attempt to turn it on after it comes into contact with water.

    I just went to Apple and picked up a new one, they restored all my APPS, contacts, everything in just a few minutes, with ICLOUD back up. Didn't even know I was using it. Was there washing the mud off an MTB..

    I really like your winter bike set up, SWEET, but even I have to wonder how you use the "aero-bars" much, seems you'd need to keep your hands on the reg. bars in the snow and ice for max. control??
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    One more concern: do you ever feel like you have too much pressure or numbness in you hands when riding?

    Same question to you, Jimbo - ever get numb hands or feel like there is too much weight on your hands when riding?

    It was 38* when I parked at Tobin Park this AM, but I was prepared, and I had a pretty good 22 mile ride all the way up into McAllister Park and back and tacked on a few more miles after that.

    One thing about it, it wasn't very crowded for a Saturday morning!

    LarDasse74, in answer to your question is no I don't, but that might be remedied in your case by trying to adjust your seat where it's either level or tilted slightly back to transfer your weight a little rearward.

    On my old bike it didn't fit, and I had that problem, but when your fitted correctly to the bike it isn't a concern, so you need to tweek yours until you find a happy medium.

    My longest ride is a little over 10 miles, but I didn't have any numbness in my hands/arms then... nor any other time I've ridden. I really like the multiple different hand positions the drop bars offer, which was the reason I did the conversion, not for any speed/aero reasons.

    I returned those godawful Forté Kōr barends. There was absolutely no padding and it was torture (I know this from riding on the trainer, not going on an actual ride ). I won a pair of Agogo ultralight bar ends on ebay. Buy it now price was $20, and there was no bid at 1:30 left in the auction. So I kept watching it, and at 10min before the end of the auction I put in my lowball bid of $0.99. I won the pair! I ended up paying $6 because of shipping, but I think I got a great deal! I taped them and installed them right when they arrived. I'll post a picture when I go for my next ride!
