i had a similar setup! i like the rb021 very much, you drilled the bars yourself? is it advisable?

Yeah I drilled the bars for the brake lines myself. Is it advisable? Probably not but it's just 2 small holes on each side on an aluminum bar.. How much harm can it do? Lol And yeah no bar tape. I sacrifice for the look =) hahah but on long rides I'll wear gloves.
