Swap meet mustache bars


Started off as an impulse road bike buy off craiglist. The drop bars weren't really comfortable and was swapped out for the mustache bars. Made a huge difference. Took a frustrating evening to get the harlequin wrap (its not a great job, but passes an initial inspection. Saddle to bar drop is a little steep, but its very comfortable, fast cruiser.
Recently got a lowrider front rack and used Ortlieb panniers. Plan to put some 28's on and take it on some bike touring. Wasn't really built for that purpose but the frame is comfortable and the group set is pretty bombproof. Shame it only has bosses for one bottle cage though!

Very cool ride

ATB That's a cool looking bike and I love the mustache bars.I have them on my Bridgestone and am setting up my Stumpjumper with a set.A lugged steel frame looks so much better than any other frame hands down.


I'm a big fan as well, pretty versatile and a nice change from road drops with as many hand positions

Cool build! Ditch the pie

Cool build! Ditch the pie plate.

I know!

I keep meaning to, but I tell myself ill do it when I decide to rebuild the wheels with rims that have a machined brake track. These wheels are terrifying in the wet.
