    i just bought the bike and havent really messed with it. i have mks sylvans with double straps i can thrown on it but i wanna try riding with the platforms for now. im not too keen on risers. i want to go to drops eventually. and i dont have a reason to upgrade the chainring so im going to leave it as is.
