Here is my now pimped 753 Raleigh frame that I have had tweaked by a lovely gent in Yorkshire called Vereon ( vernon baker bikes ). I've had the rear drop outs swapped over for horizontals with new chain tuggers fitted. The front forks are now straight and true! And its had a re-spray, fitted brakes that stop me and its running a treat.

Catch you all later. regards


Simon

honestly it looks like you would have to reach it with your hand
on the stem face plate itself, which is not a good steering position-
twitchy as hell and not much leverage. prolly why people mentioned
it. nice bike though--nice bars.

Who said it would be hard to reach? Having your hand right on top of your stem while trying to brake quickly, however, is a different story.

Stop being such a dingus and flip that damn thing over. That said, I like everything else about your bike.

i like it much better that way because it allows the lever to get closer to the stem, giving my hands more room on the top of the drops. you absolutely don't have to be riding on the stem to get at the lever, and if you can't stop and remain "steady" while riding on top of the drops (at any speed) you shouldn't be on a bike in traffic to begin with.

however, thanks for the compliments

the lever is from IRD, JayNev
