One of my favorite things to do is take an existing bike and make it more interesting. The Redline D600 is a prime example of it. This bike started off as a 24speed, 29er, then it got transformed into Burt ReynoldSS…the rigid single speed that you see below.
But this morning I was in the shop (my garage) and looked at Burt and thought, what can I do to make this bike even more interesting and fun to ride? Then it hit me! New bars and stem. I grabbed the Fyxation Alterra Cafe Bar off my commuter bike and installed it on Burt.
Here’s how it looks.
A better angle to show you the bar position.
The riding position is actually quite comfortable.
Reminds me of those “Mary Bars” or “M” bars that other brands sell.
A great angle to show you how far the bar drops.
Though the Fyxation bar isn’t really meant for the rigors of mountain biking…especially in a rigid setting, I figured it might be fun to see how well it holds up. I’ll be trying this set up in the near future!
