How wide are your bars. They dont look all that wide compared to some I've seen.
Hope you get fixed quickly.

Thanks. They're 29" (745mm) Sunlines. Syncros 31s are wider but 29 may be my limit; we'll see.

Hmm, guess I'm just crazy then. I really do like that bike, and that fork is sick.

From the Dirtspanker in Duluth, MN I placed 4th, 1 minute and 40 seconds from the leader. I just like the photos that make me look fast.

From Wed night race series.
Win #3 in a row.
Looks like I'll be getting my butt kicked in the next class next year.
