After 2 years of riding her Trucker with drop bars, Trish decided it was time to change things up and make the switch to butterfly bars.

Trekking Through the Flowers
She never really used the drops, so the new bars give her even more hand positions than she had before.

Sturmey Archer
Greatly improved braking power was an added bonus. The Sturmey Archer levers give her a lot more leverage than the old ones did.

It took a bit to get everything into their ideal positions, but eventually everything fell into place.


  1. Nice. Haven't been a fan of butterfly bars, but have been warming up to them. Cork and twine certainly don't hurt!

    1. The cork and twine was my attempt to class up the dorkiness of the bars. Every little bit helps.

    1. It's a Topeak RideCase. They also make a drybag case that works with the same mount.
