I know what you mean. I just got back into riding last year, after ten years off. I still like my bars cut down, but I never liked them super narrow.

I'm not sure what's surprised me the most. Euro bottom brackets on adult bikes, or that some racers are moving back to thread on freewheels. Seems the White Industries Eno freewheels on good sealed bearing hubs are as good or better than all but the most expensive cassette hubs. A lot cheaper, too.

I miss pad sets, though. Race bikes just don't look right, without them.
