My road bike has Moustache bars. They were a bugger to get hold of, because at the time no-one in the UK sold them.
What am I looking at?

Anyway, what am I looking at?

That is proper. Moustache bars look weird, but they're so good for riding long distances. Lots of bikes will have them in the future.


I always thought we'd have personal jet packs and flying cars in the future.......


Though, in relation to when I was a kid and watched 'Tommorrow's World', this is the future, and I'm still waitin'.........that Raymond Baxter was an effin' liar!! :x


And they said you could put jam on CDs and they would still work! Total rubbish. Said they sound better too, and that's a lie. Give me a well pressed record any day... Am I going off on a tangent? :oops: I gotta say I like it alot, but if it were mine, I'd change the bars & stem.

Think it looks dreadful. Would happily cut the name of the tube and put it on my wall, but that is genuinely a monstrosity, IMO!

All credit to whoever created it though, no slave to convention.

Or just a bunch of shouty knobs who have no idea of anything other than their own small small world.


Oh I don't know, there are some accurate and amusing comments there.

Whether you agree with him or not... "What a waste of that big cinder block - used as a stand instead of being thrown at the bike." is quite funny.

Some variation on the Dirt Drop theme, I'd say. Rody?

"The GT's designed to let fatnackers roll down a hill they're too lazy to ride up."

Made me chuckle...!
