Current Stage Info:

After messing around for a month or so with the barends in the middle of my handlebars functioning as aero bars, I decided to go for it and build an actual aero bar setup for this bike. I thought it was good before, but with real aero bars, it was incredible. It felt like flying, and while it does look a little ridiculous to see aero bars on an old steel mtb with 2" tires, the fat tires definitely make it much more rideable on bumpy city streets.
