Nice. Where do you live/ride?

Interesting bar/bar end orientation.

I try to take these scenic pictures when I ride but cedar trees aren't the most eye popping trees. Oh wait, we don't have mountains either.

nice pictures, keep em coming.

Hope you enjoyed your ride and had a merry Christmas.

Did you get your vibrating brake solved?

The bar/end combo is rotated forward a bit more than the norm...but you're probably climbing a 30% grade with 'em, so you're good to go!!

Nice pic's....I'm jealous.

Bar ends are generally pointed slightly up to give your hands a natural position. Since you're a roadie, I'd start with them at or slightly above the angle of your road bike's hoods. Here's an example, although I haven't finished fitting it and expect to rotate the entire bar assembly down just a tad.
