Big bars but they're level with the seat. This thing rides really relaxed and intuitive.
I got the tire clearances .2" all around and even closer on the fork. "Dialed"
I had to cut the steel parts of the dropout manually this time for the smaller stays and the much wider angles. They turned out much smaller than the MTB version. I also made some sunglass shaped washers for them. I'll eventually have both of those water jet cut (provided all of my current suppliers can stick around through this oil recession)
Subtle "S" bends on some of the smallest diameter seatstays I've used. sassafrass
