Next week will mark the date (my birthday) that I've been using the scrod-straps for about a year now, and they are still together! I would have never imagined that they would stay together for this long with daily use in all kinds of weather, props.

How is that set-up working for you? Thinking about duplicating it. Are your grips mounted all the way on? On the picture on the site, it looks like they take up a little more of the bar.

Scrod, it seems like the shop is really taking off, congrats. Will probably make my first purchase soon.

It's working well, I definitely like it for leisurely rides - not so much when there's a lot of climbing involved though, but I think that partially that my frame is a bit too small for me. They're definitely fairly narrow bars though, I don't think I'd want them any narrower.

The grips are on all the way, it almost looks like the ones on the site on Scrod's Kagero are a little narrower; maybe he cut his down a little?

Cool, thanks. Yeah, for now I'm doing more leisurely riding on account of some recent knee surgery.

Ahh. Don't get me wrong, I've done plenty of climbing on them, they just don't have the comfort that bullhorns/drops have for standing up and "mashing". I'm sure there are a few factors contributing to that though.

Guilty as charged.

I like them a little narrower but I figured offering them at 46cm wide would give people the option of cutting them to their preference if need be.

You consider 46cm to be wide. Hipster !

Ha! Based on the width of my shoulders, I like my bars to be between 42-44cm.

Ha, yourself! That may be true for drops or horns, but flat or riser bars need to be wider to accomodate the width of your hands. In order for your arms to be straight facing forward, risers / flats need to be one hand width wider. My small hands are about 10cm wide and I go 38 - 40cm on my drops / horns and 48-50cm on my flat bars. If I decide to keep the SE draft, I'll cut those risers down to about 50cm.

Trust me, my arms are pretty damn straight when my hands are on the grips. I tried riding with them at 46cm and it just didn't feel right when turning. At any rate, it's my bike and I'm comfortable.

We're getting close. Some delays with plumbing/carpentry work is preventing us from being fully set and have everything put away where it should be (damn contractors) but I think Angie is going in there tomorrow to clean up a bit and take some good pics. For now, I'll leave you with a few quickies:









The place is starting to feel like home.

DAMN. I would spend so much time and money there if I was a local. I'd probably buy crap I don't even need just to support you guys. I'll just have to settle for the webshop though.
