Yesterday I fitted my new-ish single speed, the Salsa El Mariachi with a Ragley Carnegie’s Bar; the same handle bar that’s on the Titus. After tonight’s ride at Stony Creek with it I’m very, very happy with this as a single speed bar. At 80mm wider than the previous carbon fiber bar I had in place it’s a lot easier to rock the bike side to side while standing and pedaling, and the different hand position is much more comfortable to me.
I’m really starting to like how this bike feels, and even as a single speed it felt extremely fast to ride today. I think I’m going to enjoy riding this bike this year.
(I just have a few small quirks left to work out. Namely, there’s a small ticking noise that I think is coming from the stem/bar area, and the seatpost is slipping a little. The computer also isn’t working right, alternately logging way too fast of speeds or no data at all.)
