Another Handlebar Play

I had a set of wider moustache bars on this bike, which just felt, well, just ... clumsy. These are Nittos, shorter and wider, with Paul finger-pull brake levers flipped to the inside to be actuated with my thumbs. Initially they were mounted conventionally to the front, but my thumbs have proven to be stronger than fingers, which give me a better grab coming down the 15 - 20% streets of Church Hill.

I have mustache bars on a couple of bikes - they're my favorite for city-riding. The original Nitto ones I think have the best shape, better than some of the copies.

The others were Somas as I recall.
