New bars new look

Huge improvement with the risers

Been wanting to change out my regular 12 speed handlebars to some straight or riser bars. Pulled the handlebars off my old mountain bike to try out the look and feel before I buy a new bar. I definitely digg the look and the riding position. Even the hand brake levers fit on new bar, wrong angle but I can brake

I did that swap on my Moto once. Even told my wife (being a smarty pants Engineer) "I don't see myself EVER riding drop bars again". I liked the mtn bike risers. Road it that way for a few years. Enjoy the ride and ride a lot.

Then I switched back. I now have it and 7 other drop bar bikes (smarty pants Engineer).
