It's not on my bike it's on a friends Singular Swift.T mon T said:hey man, what exactly is that drop/hyro set-up you are rockin there ??
It's the ESI road bar stuff. Not sure what it's called but it's a PITA to install. Worth the pain so far--pretty comfy and doesn't seem too cold in winter.txmtb said:Mike, what kind of bar tape/foam is that on your bar? Also, who made the stem, that is sweet! Thanks.
I remember those shots of your drop bar Wilits from back in the day. You're a big reason that I converted my Black Sheep to drop bar status. I love it! By the way, I'm the guy who sold you the orange Strong 29er with the Action Tec fork. I miss that bike. Glad to see you're on the Midge. Lee.mikesee said:It's the ESI road bar stuff.

The stem was made by Brad Bingham--creative fabricator extraordinaire at Moots.
That's such a fine line, I hardly think it matters. As segmented as bicycle marketing has become, I like to think bikes are like songs; there's only two kinds and I like the good ones. :thumbsup:PaintPeelinPbody said:I believe this is more of a Monstercross thread than a Drop-Bar 29er
I used to be a huge Midge fan, rode 'em exclusively for 18+ months. An increase in skills, and acquisition of suspension, made me realize the limits of the bars, and know my Leviathan is equipped (for the foreseeable future) with risers and Ergons.Drevil said:I love the looks of a burly, drop-bar equipped bike, but my hands and back usually end up suffering.
