On the first few rides it became evident that the narrow Easton carbon bars and the short stem were not going to cut it. Monte hooked me up with a sweet 140x15 Thomson stem and the bars came from the source, Jeff Jones. I ended up putting a BB-7/Paul combo on it because the hydro lines on the Juicies were not long enough to accomidate for the Jones bars. I rode around the neighborhood with the kids tonight and immediately noticed how much more stable the bike feels with the H Bar. The angle of the bar is natural feeling and seems to be the default angle of my arms if relaxed. I'm going to head out tomorrow and do some trail testing. Anyway, here's a pic of the build as of today. The next thing I might add would be a sus fork, either the Reba or the WB.
