It’s a bike, do whatever you have to do to make it enjoyable to ride for you. Better than treating it as wall art.

If I were in your Sidis, I would immediately take that bicycle to the nearest co-op and just leave it there, no questions asked.

Hear HEAR,,the farging frame even has a seat post IN IT!!

For the OP-I tried a flat-ish/sweepy, upright bar on my Moots and after one ride ditched it because of the lack of hand positions and it wrecked my wrists.

Geezzz..just build it with some road stuff and ride the pissa out of it..sounds like weisan is bored .

You should install a dropper seatpost and ride it on singletrack.

Seriously, full roadie.

The clamping comments reminded me of this instagram post. The Pro Tip in comments is amusing.

Absolutely legendary post, I still think about the "old mechanic's pro tip" and chuckle every once in a while

When I saw this pic with the bike set up with 700c wheels and the pads maxed out at the top with the short reach brakes, I thought 650b conversion is the way to go to gain some tire clearance. Great minds!
