Life behind bars


Did bike maintenance over the weekend. New brake and derailleur cables. Even though bottom bracket and headset are sealed cartridge bearings, put a new layer of grease on them. Installed a new bling gold KMC chain. And a new (to me … take-offs from one of the guys at LBS) Bontrager Elite Aero handlebars.  Alloy, not carbon. BTW, internal cable routing is a minor PITA. But I’m happy with the result. Trek claim up to 23 seconds savings over an hour versus regular handlebars. I’m skeptical at best and don’t really care. It’s all about how they look!
