so i got a new handlebar today. ever since i rode the rocky mountain slayer, i've been thinking about those huge wide handlebars, i guess enough to where i actually dreamt i got a pair. i figure if it's in my dreams, it means the universe wants me to have them, so i got them.
thing is, the bars i bought are only slightly wider than what i had, same rise and rake. barely 1/2 an inch on either side, i didn't think it would actually make any difference, but holy crap, it really does. they feel totally different.
i also really like them cause they are shiny. i'm fascinated by shiny objects.
tomorrow i'm gonna drive to Driggs, Idaho, to test them out in the tetons.
here are some pics of my shiny new bars.
