    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.
