    All DIY. $50 for a Midge bar. $27 for Tektro R520 levers.

    On both of mine, the aluminum rims (with steel spokes) were hooked. I replaced the tires with Big Apples and I can go all the way up to the max rating on the tire (55psi?) with no issue.

    There's nothing I can do on my Giant Reign that I can't do on my 140mm forked hardtail. In fact, since I've been riding a full rigid lately (with drop bars and cantilever brakes, no less), I dare...

    I like the Midge bars. This is my 2nd set. My first set is on my early 90's Rockhopper. Climbing feels so much better with drop bars. Coming down is actually fun, even on a full rigid steel bike.

    RIP. I bet the Park tools I own will outlive me, so I'm not surprised that they outlived one of the company's founders. That's a true legacy.
