Hmmm......

Velo Orange quill adapter
High rise stem
Midge bar
Dia Compe levers
Dura Ace shifters

Going to use this bike for the coast to coast, so some more hand positions will be useful. I hate quill adapters, but this one is not bad looking! The midge needs a front load stem, try finding a high rise 1" Front load quill stem!

Very nice!
I'd do black cork tape but lots of possibilities

Didn't get on with the drops:

Scored some new high rise modern Gusset "Open Prison" bars in Chrome for £23 on ebay. These are 22.2 but come with a 25.4 shim. Awesome bars, cromo with great quality chroming. Close in looks to 80's risers and strong too.

You must be lost as that looks nothing like my way home through NYC. :D


Using the bikes as it was meant ... Excellent!
