I do need to get different bars eventually, but I sit comfortably in the hoods or the drops there. The bars are like 47cm wide and work great, but don't look totally right admittedly
They actually track bars with a very rounded, forward cockpit.>>1273255
2012 Diamondback Podium 1. The frame for their Podium 1-4 bikes at the time (600-2200 dollars) before getting to the Carbons.
They aren't light alloy frames, but they're very good. Probably close to 1800 grams with a 550 gram fork (alloy steerer and overbuilt). Their newer rim alloy models are closer to the 1400 gram marks on the frame.>>1273249
Get somesuper fat knobbies, better brakes, and a nice 1x crankset and you have yourself a great hipster bike.>>1273350
Can you stand flat on the ground without the tube tube hitting your nuts?>>1273366
You should slevel your hood out. If you get a shorter stem and lift it a little you will feel exactly the same but without the bike looking retarded from the sky high levers.
The levers themselves should always be vertical.
