I don’t know why, maybe I just haven’t ridden it enough yet, but the bars & grips on my new bike feel pretty good so far.

Here’s a shitload of alternative bars with even more sweep than the PNW Range, for anyone thinking about that.

Well, sure enough, I hadn’t ridden it enough. After riding several days in a row on my other bikes, I took the Pivot out for a spin and my wrists were hurting. I installed today, same as on my Kona, PNW Range bars (which have 10mm more rise & 2 degrees more backsweep) and Ergon GA-3 grips and went for a ride. It felt much better, and not just because it felt familiar.

Something new in the world of carbon bars if this is your thang and you’ve got monē to burn.

This not only makes sense, but is pretty entertaining too.
