Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

But I'd put them inboard, at a 'traditional' width.

I tried them on this bike & also a hybrid. was an interesting experiment. aside from their location, what I also didn't like was the angle of the straight bars. meaning, due to the angle of the (not so straight) bars it is not the same as using a legit drop bar conversion
