New Bars On The Fat Bike
I was talking to Carol, the other day, and I said, "I love the fat bike. But, the more I ride it, the more I dislike the handlebar."
"Well, change it out," she said.
That made sense to me. So, today I went over to Cycle Analyst and bought a no-rise Surly Open Bar, and installed it on the bike.
It seems odd to me that I find the mtb riser bar so uncomfortable, now. I put many thousands of happy miles on similar bars, back in the day. I suppose I have just been riding on mustache-style bars for so long, now, that I have acclimated to them at the expense of the traditional mtb set-up.
All the cool bikes have kickstands...
I rode the fat bike to work and back (17.3 miles, round trip) on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. By the time I was halfway home on Friday, my right wrist felt like there was a needle sticking into it. I suspect that these bars will fix that.
Now, to figure out what to do about fenders...
