i like the strategically placed bell. and it’s a… 10 speed? fascinating.
And did you get a new (old) bike recently?
I got a frame with some bike parts attached to it, yes. I’m building a bike from found/bought objects.
I have mustache bars and brake levers if you’d like them.
i’m making bullhorns out of the noodle bars i have.
what sort of brake levers are they? i haven’t quite made up my mind about exactly the brake levers i’m looking for, but i think i want black housed ones like the ones pictured above. i’m being super picky about every aspect of this bike, so i think i’ll end up buying most of the parts online.
Bullhorns are nice. They would have been my second pick after drop bars.
I’m fairly sure that with bullhorns, there’s a special sort of brake lever that nests inside the end of the tube and brings the lever slightly closer to the bar (in its resting position) then you would get with standard levers with hoods. Sadly I am no expert on such things.
The brake levers I have (before switching the bars around on the pictured bike) had a tan hood to them, they bend slightly (not so great) and the cables are coming out of the tops, which makes it hard to run under bar tape.
