My stoker always complains that her view is blocked by something large and not particularly transparent.

Here's a new set of handlebars over which you see my native habitat of Saint Paul, MN.

It makes for a nice, comfy, simple Toshi Baiku (City Bike, in Japanese).

It has a pair of compound-curve bamboo fenders from , a nice Gye's leather saddle, and an alloy chainguard from Velo Orange. So of course I have to include a shot of that here as well:


What a beautiful day for a ride...

I thought this was quite the angle! GoPRO screenshot as I was going over a drop on my mountain bike. It's still technically a "behind the bars" photo... just WAY behind the bars. lol.

Finally Got a new bike this year. I bought a Giant ATX lite and I had to get the Jones H loop bars. The bars are great for the multiple hand positions. Need better tires for mountain biking, but those will come later.

Just ran across this thread. That's a great-looking bike! I love the look. Like what you've done w/the bars too. Your setup looks perfect for just following your nose and exploring whatever roads or gravel you find while out on a ride.

I've a shot from yesterday's ride that fits this thread, I think. I'll dig it out later and post it.

Below is a shot from yesterday's ride. You're looking at the Iron Ore Heritage Trail somewhere between Marquette and Neguanee, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Beautiful trail. Got in 19 miles, give or take.
