I do like that mounting bar though -- what's it called and where did you get it.

Soma "Clarence" bar, Blackburn mirror, Incredibell, CygoLite Rover II LED. I just swapped out the stock riser bar for the Clarence bar last week. I had been getting pain in my hands on any rides longer than 4-5 miles and decided to try a bar with more sweep back. So far I like the Clarence bar, however I have not been on any rides longer than 10 miles with them yet. I don't think the Clarence is a good choice if you like a lot of accesories on your bars as the only straight section is the clamp area.

Ergon grips are next on the list for this bike.

Thanks for the link, just ordered one! That should definitely clean up my clutter with plenty of space left for expansion.

Depending on the Powershot model you have, you may be able to add this functionality.

http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK

Download the firmware for your model and install it on your memory card. This firmware doesn't replace the original firmware, it just loads from the card. Great stuff!

I really want to mount my Powershot S2. But it's big! Maybe I'll just zip tie it.

I'd be a bit apprehensive about mounting a Canon S2 on any bike regardless of the mount. The zoom lens on that camera is quite fragile and most likely not stand up to the vibration that it would be exposed to on a bike.

I have the lensmate adapter that protects the lens, but didn't think about the vibration. Thanks WCoastPeddler!

The problem I ran into is my model isn't yet supported. I've posted in their forum asking if they can suggest a model that is and if so I'll return this one and get the one that is. They seem to drop the IS off the models when they list them so i can't easily tell which is which.
Our big camera is an S3 IS

I don't call seeing it supported by chdk either, if it were then I'd try the firmware for it figuring my 1100 shouldn't be much different.

Used to have a bar-end mirror, but it smashed last month when the bike fell over.

There was a compass on my bell, but it fell off.

Bells are required here as well but only for cycling on the MUP's
I like the look of the Aero Bar setup in Timber's OP. I just might give that a try.

Specialized Elite computer, Two Bell 5-LED lights from Target, and Mirracycle bell...that's enough for me!

Thumbs up Just the start!



Going to add light or lights and a bicycle computer, due to having Reiter's Syndrome (Chronic) I've got arthritis in my shoulders so I can't handle the "weight" of even a "small camelback" system. The bike only came with 1 (usable) frame mounted waterbottle point and I drink a LOT of water while riding so the "Trekking Bars", gave me room for 2 extra cages so I'm happy!

1972 puch
there were not to many choices for brake levers since i have the original center pulls. i had to turn the levers upside down to get a compact fit with the
acrea rapid fires.

Those are the longest "flat" bars I have ever seen.

there a bit of a problem getting them through a doorway. i have a bianchi hybrid with shorter flat bars but i like the wide ones, so it stays.

Some people like the stability, some people like the convenience. To each his own... Nice bike! (forgot to mention that while I was criticizing your bars. lol)
