I bought a bike with a small frame; tried out one and found out it was for a female. It was tight, light, felt like a little motorbike with a big engine. I think I must have got a unisex one . . . I changed the handle bars to suit my benighted status (everyone calls me "sir" now) which comes with age. But these might suit anyone who likes comfort and security. You can stop on a sixpence (dime) using the original shifters. See what y'all think!

The lower drops are for hill climbing. You don't need brakes for hill climbing.
