    No, I was talking about this firstly:


    And secondly, the notion, that hydraulic brakes are akin to electronic shifting and whatnot, and that because of your "hints", as if the rest of us are...

    Pot. Kettle - even without reading what I actually said about cold and not riding my bike in -22f because I don't want to ride when it is that cold. But you, you are so great that you need a bike...

    The funny part is, that some people will probably buy it. You need not look further than "cable-risers" and "timing clock" (yes, that's an alarm clock you place in the room to aid with the "timing"...

    It's actualle .5 of a watt saved if you compare the "cleaned" with the "optimised".

    Needless to say, I'm having my chain optimised.

    Three wheels - two at the front, one at the rear. Low seating position. Tall wheels with a tilting mechanism for the turns.
    Three wheels, because that means all three will most likely touch at all...

    Yup, that's the stuff!

    Come to think of it, the branding on gears, hubs, rims, levers, cranks, pedals, tyres, and whatnot is also super annoying. Even if I removed all I could, I would still have...

    Weight, obviously. Who wouldn't like a bike that weighed in at 5 pounds, yet were superstrong?

    Seriously, though, my singe complaint - which is true of most any bike, is the damn paint jobs and...

    What will you do when you get a flat?

    Seriously, if $5 is expensive to you, you should get a job, so you can maintain your bike. If I were you, I'd get some cheap handlebars from a rust bucket...

    No idea. There is no picture, nor a link. But as I said, go find a rust-bucket and swap the handlebars and stem. For other options, re-read this very thread.

    Hmm, seriously, we are saying to get a new stem while you're at it, because it is probably the same "quality" as the handlebars you broke.

    Yes, by shopping around a bit, it should be possible. If...

    Find some cheap alu handlebars and buy a stronger stem from them at the same time. First you find a shop with cheap handlebars, and then find the stem at the same place.

    Do you seriously think I requested pictures? WTF!?

    You need a new and stronger handlebar and perhaps a stronger stem to make sure that that doesn't break either. That is what almost all of us have...

    I don't know which country "IL" is, so that's not going to happen. But you still haven't grasped that go looking a single place which has, what? Ten handlebars? isn't really saying anything at all....

    You are not the bike. How can you get hurt worse than broken handlebars? Really?



    Nope. Try doing that on a penny-farthing, a chinese cargo bike, or on a recumbent. Won't happen ;)
