Saw this on the gram and instantly thought of this thread.
Love the tiny boat
A friend brought her bike to a shop recently and they did this to it, apparently to make it easier to reach the brakes ...
Two from paceline.
They are both nice bikes tho. Shame
First one doesn’t seem too egregious to me. But then I’ve been worrying my bike might show up in here anyway
I bet it is totally rideable, but if bars tilt down and hoods move back up to where they are currently sitting it would be much better
Everything is wrong. That’s brilliant.
The Riv looks to me like a case of BD but not HU. In my experience, moving the hoods further up on Nitto Noodles makes for a weird ramps/hoods transition and the levers move further away from the drops forcing your wrists in an uncomfy position.
My experience is that these levers are always uncomfortable compared to modern ones...
The bars look okay to me, drops pointing to the rear brake bridge. The hoods could actually come down a bit.
^^^ I guess it works for him!
That's not the point of this thread tho
Oh I know! :-D
We’ll never know how much faster he could have been.
Considering the dirt down there he never is in the drops in this area
Tape color adds to the offense
fancied a change back from flats to drops so thought I'd take the opportunity for a bit of bdhu.
looks really weird with the loooong trp levers and flared bars.
felt pretty comfy on a quick shakedown. any bdhu advice before I tape up?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
