I have replaced an 80mm stem with a 60.. 670mm bars with 725mm,
and lowered the whole lot as well.

Hmm spacers.

Racey red grips. They are faster.

It now has bar plugs. Hammers are great inventions.


This is going to be interesting!

Nice, however I will be **shooting for 725-740mm :butbut: so they might just crack 200g.
Just as well I ordered those bolts.

XC??

No fun !
I am going to learn to ride like a grom, only with more carbon.

Low wide bars= uber for turns and down the hills, and the low bars put the riding position in the same place going up them.

What could possibly go wrong?
