Silly trendy habit that has developed in recent years - using 'moustache' bend bars (very similar to the old roadster/North Road pattern) but using drop-bar levers fitted flat on the bend. Really no need for it, and it is a poor solution* to a problem that doesn't even exist. They should just use the standard flat-bar brake levers, a much better tool for the job.

Image


* Drop-bar levers in that position render the hood position irrelevant, and they have a real hazard of bottoming out the lever on the bar, or giving you minimal brake lever travel. A flat mount also gives a really atrocious hand position.

Brakeless with a monster gear, deep section front and disc rear wheel. Roads must be dead flat and windless around there.
OR it's a posed advert shot and the bike's just come out the back of the Hummer before being whisked back to their window display.

TT bike!? Tsk... Its obviously a Tarck bike. Though, MBill is probably right; it is probably more show than go.
