Bluebert is a whole new man/bike. Gone are the horrible drop handlebars that reeked of faded 70’s glory. In are the new customised straight handlebars which are so ’09. I use ‘customised’ in particularly generously – I lopped a bit off the length with my new ?3.99 Wilkinson hacksaw to optimise my streamlineness and more importantly, to look cool.
Combined with the new levers, grips and cables, all this might mean I’ll be able to stop at more traffic lights.
