I wouldn't be a Fred if I didn't do something that my roadie colleagues would consider drastic. The first thing I did was replace the bars. Standard drops with no flare just aren't sexy and make you look like half a dozen roadie posers out on the roads. Salsa Cowbells were recommended but I decided to go with the Gary2 bars I recently acquired.
The Gary2's don't have as much flare as the Salsa Woodchippers and since they are chrome I thought that it would compliment the cranks and seatpost that I was planning on using, also both chrome.
