NITTO handlebar conversion

by michelle bontrager in


Sometimes a semi-retired all terrain bicycle can be turned into the perfect city commuter with a few minor adjustments. For the owner of this Bridgestone mountain bike we recommended a new NITTO stem and handlebar. Look at the results.

Cinelli cork tape was wrapped in the grip area, for comfort and style.

We often recommend a handlebar conversion if you have a nice quality bicycle that might be enjoyed a little bit more if the geometry was adjusted just so. As we all know, it's easier to ride with traffic if we are at ease on the saddle.
