Voila… it’s Summer!!! That means it was time for an update on my red Alex Moulton AM-7. This time it took me almost half a day at Boxdog’s busy workshop space where the following work was done: Replacing the old drop bars and bar-end shifters with new riser bars and gear shifter, as well as brake levers, and the standard Oury grips. Since I rarely go down in the drops, I figured this would be a new and welcome change. Riser bars enable me to sit up a bit, now more of my weight is pressed on the seat where it should be rather than my arms. The width was at first about 50 cm before Ian at Boxdog helped to cut the bars down. I got home and decided that narrower bar would help reduced the flex, so I chopped out more bar down to 38cm. The handing is much better now, not quick and swaying…

San Francisco hyphy effect is at full force.. sorry to those that don’t agree with my new set up, I know who you are… ha…. I really like this set up……. enjoy the pictures ya all.. have a nice week….
