Jamis Sputnik 2012

Jamis Sputnik 2012, got the bike after it had been used twice in a velodrome. It had straight bars so I reconditioned some old drop handlebars, needed brakes, brake levers etc. Got the blue cork grip new, same with the Shimano brakes and Tektro levers.

No, you have bar to saddle drop rather than saddle to bar drop, your seat post is hardly sticking out of your frame, your bars are at the wonkiest angle ever.

Read the update and you'll see I've raised and straightened the bars. Seat has to be there for my height - foot retention for safety? Old bike had retention and I'd often forget to or find it difficult to remove my feet once stopped... yeah...

whatever... if that's really where your seat is for your height, then either you're fitted wrong, or the frame is way to big for you. Anyways have fun cruising a long, having your feet slip off the pedals and not be able to stop cause you have no foot retention

Thanks for the comment! I followed a youtube tutorial on the bars, are they pointing up too much?

The bottom of the bar should be more parallel to the ground
