Another Christmas and another gift certificate to one of the best Local Bike Shops in Connecticut (just my opinion). Not only do they have just about everything imaginable but the selection is incredible. I got to talk shop to a customer and one of the mechanics that were debating the various merits of dirt drops including Salsa 4Woodchippers and Cowbells when I asked them whether they ever heard of Misfit Psycles FMe bars.
The one customer said that he couldn't stand STI levers and therefore would need to use thumb shifters. I jumped into the conversation and suggested Bar End shifters but I told him what he really needs are the FMe bars because you run them with the regular MTB levers and shifters.
Prior to coming down there I made a list of all the things that I need and I picked up the most important ones needed to finish my Raleigh build. I ran into the Matt outside, too.
