They're such great bars. For this bike though, it made it feel a little too small; I've since switched to drops. If you want a chill ride, use them.

Thank you! I intend to convert it to a drop bar setup (for fit reasons and also bc that's what the frame is meant for), but enough money has been spent on it for now.. (:
