A Nice pair of CW freestyle bars landed??
They look similar to MK2 Burner bars, are mine legit? fistblump

Don't quote me on it but I think I remember finding out that the knurling is a solid diamond pattern on the CW's. Others will be able to confirm if that is right or wrong Steve. You would probably expect some nicer welds on the CW's too I'm guessing.
Looking good whatever they are  fistblump
Many thanks , I'll check  the knurling tomorrow, the welds are mint👍Love your new ride.

Steve.

Cheers Steve. Are your bars 27 inches wide ? Looking at a few sold pairs on the museum 27 seems to be the magic number 👍🏼
Low end French does it for me ! 😂

Decided to upgrade the track bike.



With more carbon.



Bontrager. Will refurb them and paint the silver areas black. Then clear the whole lot. The slight offset will be nice, as the bike was designed as a fully fixed. Meaning with proper pedals on there and no straps the front wheel hits your feet if you are not careful. The offset will push the front wheel out ever so slightly.

Plus it will be a huge weight drop, given those LG are steel. I've got a Campagnolo TT front brake to put on it too with some white tuff pads, but will save that until I fit the fork. Also getting slimmer tyres too.

I'm finally doing it.



Spotted that on Ebay for 60 quid. Knew it was a HED, didn't know which. Turns out it's a '93 Tour De France wheel, and they are worth 10x what I paid. Got onto HED who told me it uses all Shimano hardware, so the rebuild will cost me 20 quid.



Then to knock it down to single speed.
