Make, model, colour all fine; but the angle is a bit 'ooh, err'! Just get it level(ish) with the stem :D :wink:

......."a bit ooh,err"! Is that a highly technical description? :wink:
Sounds a bit like Frankie Howard! "No, Mrs, Stop it you're mocking!" :wink: :lol:

Sorry, will get the bar ends leveled up tomorrow. Thanks for the imput.

I like the straight bar/bar end look. Am not too keen on these modern riser handle bars. :|

'Ooh, err', very technical description; a bit like 'wow wee, nice bike'! :D
There was a thread in MTB chat about 3 - 4 weeks ago about bar ends, angle etc. Most people plumped for level(ish) with the stem angle, unless of course you've put them up due to back pain etc. All personal choice of course, dont move them just because we've commented :wink:

.....Right-oh.
Have fixed the ooh, err problem and raised the seat post a bit more. 8)

When I started riding the SanAn I had it quite upright being an owd bugger.
But the more I ride it the speed comes back and I want it more "arseup". :wink:

Just spotted this early San Andreas on ebay USA. It's not changed too much in 17 years of production.
