My winter bike.

Had a hard life this year so just given it a facelift with a new white FSA stem and deda bartape.

    I'm sorry, but you need to sort those hoods out on the summer bike. I have no idea how you actually ride it with them like that...

    Road - Dolan Preffisio
    MTB - On-One Inbred

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    Yeah i know, i fitted the new stem last weekend and put the bars on but didnt notice how much they were pointing up until i uploaded the photos on here, the bars need to be angled down more as do the planet x ones.

    Like the mount for the Garmin 305 , is it one of the slide in sideways type , where did you get it, cheers.

    The bars should be flat since they are bladed and the shifters moved round.

    No its actually one of the 1/4 turn ones for the new edge units, i got an adaptor from raceware to turn my old edge into a 1/4 turn fitting.

    Yes i know. ive flattened the bars out now and shifters are lower down. However, i have a number ofissues with my back and dont have great flexibility and i still need the shifters higher than most would have them. If i lower them too much, i cant reach to shift or brake without discomfort. I have tried different bars, ergo, compact, etc and after lots of trial and error, the fit and reach to the shifters is spot on for me :D
