Nice ride. I'm particularly interested in the bar setup you have.

It's the stock bar that came with the bike... The grips are a set of ergo-grips with bar ends that I picked up last week to try and help combat numbness in my hands and arms on long rides.

I don't remember the brand off hand... They ran me just under $70.

No problem. I knew I could get them less expensive online, but I was on a longer ride and wanted new grips. Stopped at a bike shop to grab pedals and they were there, so I bought them.

That is a good looking bike.

I actually quite like the look of your seat, could you please tell me the brand and model of the seat and your impressions of it.

With your Ergon grips, are you able to set the angle of the bar ends, independent of the position of the hand grips?

It's a Bontrager seat... I am not sure of a model designation... I have had that seat for a couple years... It was on my buddies bike for years, and I got it from him when he changed his seat. I like it because of it's built in flashing lights... It's a comfortable seat, but I do get numb groin on long rides.

Yes... The grip position and the bar ends can be adjusted independently. I need to tweak mine a little bit!
