> Interesting bars I must say

Wiggliness is its own reward. Por ejemplo:

That reminds me - is Tom Ritchey gay?

Bars are too narrow and deep, but they were on the right track.

At some point, stems went long. Think it was around 1910... Must have been

Jacquie Phelan wasting ass on a Cunningham Indian built by her husband, Richard Cunningham. Very modern looking geometry, bars aside. You always need a tall hear tube running drops on a mountain bike else they just end up far too low.

I guess its abit like the on one Mary bars. They look odd and abnormal, but all the people that ride with them love them.

I did just notice in the photo of those drops bars is unlike roadie a drop they are wider/flare out at the bottom

cool 29er. What is it like riding with those bars down ridgeline? Looks like a bit of a reach forward for the brakes, putting you quite far forward, or do you have inline brakes as well?

Is the 29er a good option for wellington? I am thinking of one as my next mtb (still keep the 26" SISS though).

enjoy

that stem does look a bit long/low for me - but hey, it isn't my bike and what fits fits.
I'm trying the flared drops on my fixie and they'll then be going on the roadrat. I'm running an 80mm 35degree stem to put the drops in a place that suits me... or I will be just as soon as that damn salsa rasta grip tape arrives...

Bar Height

Postby Domesticles on Fri 11/Aug/06 9:00am

At present the bars are very slightly too low and too far forward for me. Taller and steeper stem would fix it, but my preferred solution is to buy an uncut replacement fork and stick a 0 deg stem on it. This will put the bars up nice and high so they won't touch the top tube in a crash and puts my hands about 4 inches under the seat height. Very good for standing climbing and the long top tube (24", I'm 6' tall) and big wheels means that it's not so crucial to get off the back on short stuff.

I don't ride Ridgeline, for preference, but cleaned Zac's and Varley's going down without taking my seat down. No problem!

I reckon 29ers are best for tall people, but I've heard of guys as low as 5'7" saying good things about them. Issues really are toe clearance and standover height. My gf is 5"1 and has a 26" rigid Gary Fisher which, proportionally speaking, looks quite a lot like my On-One 29er.

I still reckon you should ride a wheel you can just straddle.

Coker, who do 36" wheels that people like Ken Looi like, made a cruiser bike based on their 36" rim and tyre. Weighs 72 lb, apparently, but I can't see why a 36" mtb is out of the question. Would get a bit heavy but if you're built like Jonah Lomu and need a bike that fits, who cares about weight?

Nanana, bottom bracket height is normal - it's the hub height that makes it look weird... I'd love to ride on of these Coker bikes but with steel rims, I dunno...

Just out of interest - in pack and pedal albany today and they had an Avanti SS horizontal dropout road/track machine 50% off. Someone might want to post that in the road thread in the appropriate place too?
