Here is a quick pic of my ride as it sits right now. I have posted it before, but I changed the bars. The original photo I posted showed my bike with Bosco bars. I really liked the ride with the Boscos, but didn't like them offroad much. Too much backsweep.

After that I installed some butterfly touring bars. I liked the multiple hand positions and they were also very comfortable, but again, off road was a little sketchy for me.

Now I have the H-bar style, as shown here. These, so far are the best. Coming from a BMX background and having lived in the mountains during that time, these bars totally suit my riding style. I have taken them on some mellow single track stuff and they are really nice. And they offer enough in the way of different hand positions that bike path and street riding is quite comfortable.

And, yes, there is a shifter on the bars and no gears! LAL. I was toying with the idea of going back to a 1x setup, but I really think I will be staying single speed... at least for now. In the next week or so I am going to get a single speed wheelset and go with that for a while. Right now I am running a converted wheel.

That is a cool bike! I liked it with the Bosco bars too.
