Where is the hack number zero?
After touring the Big Island of Hawaii by mountain bike & camping gear, heavy & expensive camera equipment, etc. (total weight: 110 pounds) Whew! My neck has 8 screws & rebar holding it rigidly together, which turned really painful in that riding position for 30 to 60 miles per day.
I redesigned the handlebars for a more upright, comfortable ride. I ditched the straight horizontal handlebars for the 1970s style high rise handle bars. I bent the ends towards me, so I didn’t have to splay my elbows outwards. For handles, I used the hand grips from 2 broken BB pistols. Almost complete, I was going to attach the brake cables to the pistol triggers.
During my move to Connecticut, my bike, bike rack, skis & roof rack were stolen! Aargh!!!
I have a new bike now, and intend on doing the same. I’ll post some photos when I’m done.
