Messing around with bikes

Agility in the mountains

Wider handlebars (some noname Sakai bars that I think came from Boulder Bicycles), new less-filthy black Chinese handlebar tape, and a Terry Zero saddle (from a Trek 560 frame a friend gave me.) The wider handlebars will give me a bit more leverage when the kit bike is grinding through the slushy ravines of the street (which may be covered with a sheet of ice tomorrow, depending whether it starts raining before it warms up or not), the tape is because the old cork stuff was incredibly grimy and not long enough to wrap these bars, and the saddle is part of my ongoing quest to find a non-leather saddle that’s close to as comfortable as a Berthoud saddle is.
