I've seen a few threads and things on handlebars, namely:
- flat bar w/bar ends vs road bike bar for touring;
- your "go to" touring handlebar;
- Handlebars for Touring;
- as well as images on google.
There seem to be a number of ways to set up trekking bars. I'm a little confused about how you guys set up trekking bars, as in which way they're pointing, and how the shifters and brakes are set up. If any of you could explain how you're setting them up, especially with a picture, I'd really appreciate it. I don't have a camera myself, so I understand if you can't give us a picture, but they are worth a lot. Maybe it would help if you could refer to one end of the trekking bar as the open end, the other as the stem end.
Likewise other setups I'll be glad to see, especially cowhorns with aero handlebars, or straight bars with bar ends. I'm also particularly interested in setups that give multiple positions for the brakes, as in interrupter brakes.
