In San Francisco, You Aren’t Cool If Your Bicycle Handlebars are Too Wide

Note that these handlebars have room for hands, brake levers and a bell – I think that they can be chopped a bit more, don’t you?

Still, the slim look is handy for getting around buses and traffic ‘n stuff.

Bravo.

    That bike would be SO MUCH COOLER without brakes and derailleurs!

    Yeah those brakes are just dead weight.

    God, those shorty handlebars are such an affectation. They might make sense in NYC, but out here there are barely any street conditions where having chopped handlebars will get you through somewhere you couldn’t go through otherwise.
