New handlebar day

New porteur-width handlebars for the mountainhack

I swapped out the mountainhack’s road handlebars for a pair of porteur-width (50cm) rando bars that Velo Orange was selling for $10 in one of their garage sales. These are very wide bars for me, and they give plenty of room for bulky cargo & my hands, unlike the 44cm bars I had on the thing previously.

I also needed to swap the 11cm mutant stem for a 8cm “Forte” mutant-alike, because these rando bars extend a lot further than the old bars did. Did I mention that they are very wide bars? Shortening the stem also makes up for my arms angling out from my body.
