Just picked up one of these and was thinking about doing something similar with the handlebars. How do you like the Albastache bars?

I like it very much and is a lot more comfortable than the dirt drops that I had on. I even prefer them more than traditional road drops. It probably also helped that I put a tall stem as well.

Thanks for mentioning. I may change the dirt drops though. I ride on pretty flat pavement and I can’t get accustomed to them.

Yeah dirt drops have to be set perfect to be even remotely comfy. Try out bullmoose bars, they're super comfy and somewhat swept back.

Definitely. I tried adjusting, but still the same. As for the bullmoose, I’ll definitely have to try. I was actually considering ordering the version from Rivbike but they are kind of pricey. On the otherhand, that is the price of both the stem and bars. I’m going to sell these dirtdrops to put towards that.
