Got an aluminum framed disk brake (BB7) hardtail I converted to spingle seed but now I'm putting gears back on (3x9) for commuting, maybe even touring. Going to get a rigid fork, maybe a Surly Troll or something. Anyway, I don't care for the handlebars on it right now…real lack of back sweep bugs my hands.
Anyone try the Surly Open bars or some of those other J-Bar or H-Bar things? Mary bars?
Ideally I want something with a bit of sweep (maybe a lot of sweep?) and perhaps something that allows multiple hand positions. What have you guys found that works well on a mtb to commuter conversion? I don't want to have to change from the mtb brakes and shifters to make it work.
Cheers big ears.
