I recently completed a nice new build (Keirin track frame), and I am finding the sexy track drops to be fairly uncomfortable and slightly sketchy, particularly in NYC. Thinking of switching to riser bars to elevate my style slightly in traffic and make the ride more comfortable.
Seems a shame to throw riser bars on this bike, but I think comfort, practicality, and safety may win over aesthetics.
Anyone on the forums use riser bars - or have pictures of their set-up? I have seen just a few on FGG and here. I have also read a few previous threads, but nothing seemed too concrete.
Opinions welcome, obviously, thanks in advance.
