You've got me thinking about a pair of flat bars now :?

And not using any more sticks :!:

That's nice.

One hell of a long stem, 'specially considering the seat height! :shock:

Were you hung from the arms for long periods as a child?? :wink: :D :D

Great bike. 8)

.............and if the risers and bar ends work for you......go for it. :wink:

Big crash early on in it's life. the bars whipped round putting a big dint and kink in the top tube. The bike never tracked straight when you rode no handed after that. It's always bugged me and thought if i'm going to re build the bike I might as well sort it out. I now always spin the bars on any build or adjustments to levers etc. to make sure if it happens again there's clearance over the top tube, and advise anybody to do the same. :D

It's funny you mention about the stem, they say your reach is about your height.
My reach is 6-0 but my height is 5-9 ...The missing link or what :?:
But the set up feels ok for me.
