A few weeks ago I went from bullhorns to a flat bar in order to create “Nacho.” So this week I decided to step it up a bit. Moe gave me some old mountain bike riser bars. At first I cut them down and painted it white. But I must have used some cheapo paint because I got my grimmy hands on the white and the grease wouldn’t come off. So the next thing I did was just sand off the bars down to the bare aluminum. I tried to get it polished the best I could with the equipment I have. I then cut the bars another inch shorter on each end.
I also installed these ergonomic grips provided to us by Hermans
Here’s a close up on the “brushed aluminum” bars.
I decided to reinstall my brakes since there are plenty of big hills in my area. But this time I went with an XTR lever. However, I only had the right hand lever, so not wanting to confuse my brain and motor skills, I went ahead and flipped the levers and placed them on the left side. I know…I know there some guys that ride with their front brakes on the right side like a motorcycle. But that’s not how I roll.
