Just for you.....................
Looks like a nippy commuter. At least it's got brakes. Did you build that yourself?
It's the Pinarello 'Only The Brave' model, I changed the wheels, the handlebars and the chain, apart from that, it's standard
Standard? There's not much of it left! We used to own an ex-MOD Land Rover 90 and judging from the service record the only original parts left were the engine and the chassis.
Did well to keep the original engine, those squaddies are not known for looking after such things!
580mm now, still feel wide haha
Yes, I would live with them a while before cbopping. My exped bike came with very wide bars and I almost asked the bike shop to chop them. But I came to like them very soon. Mind you that bike often hauls a lot of weight.
Nevertheless, wait a while before cutting.
You are 100mm too late with that post!
Hacksaws and bare feet
It's a winning combination
Ha, ta, that will teach me to scan/jump ahead in threads
I hacksawed about an inch off the bars i got for wifes Allez conversion. Spot on now and took 5 mins. Will do same on my mtb as changing twist grips to Shimano XT shifters. Nothing beats a bit of tinkering eh?
Just back from a ride, the new grips made such a difference, standing hill climing easier and just to have a change of grip, defo a good buy.
Like the bar width too will stick with 580 for a while now, any shorter will be hard to mount my phone on the bars too haha
