The bike being built: Surly CrossCheck
I am planning on making this my winter snow and crud commuter. I'm struggling with the best choice for bars. The guy at the shop recommended these big wide mustache looking bars... Those look comfy for cruising around, but sometimes I like to get out of the saddle and crank up some hills, even in the winter.
I don't want to be TOO stretched out though. Should I go with just the regular ol' drops? I would like body to be seated a little more upright for sketchy snow biking.
