    ha, someone stole my bars I was using, and the wooden bars are somewhat temporary, I just haven't found anything else I like. I cut a branch off of a tree in the back yard and stripped the bark off and cut it to size... I didn't buy them.

    I love the background of the photo, and I really like the paint choice of your bike. I'd be too afraid to ride that bike brakeless though (with homemade wooden bars and a super beefy gear ratio).
