    They're just pursuit bars set up at a jackass angle.

    If he has to set up his bars like that to be comfortable, he's doing something else wrong.

    It's set up so it can comfortably lean against the fence while he takes pictures of it.

    Okay, my mistake. I thought you were implying my criticism of his bars was aesthetic in nature.

    Google search "Read the thread." Those aren't RB-021's. They're Syntace Stratos with a big drop.
