    Beautiful! I compared your pics of V1 and V2, and noticed that your seat is now higher, while your armrests and handrests are lower. On this latest setup you must be hunched quite a bit (a sideways picture would be appreciated BTW). It seems to me that that would be difficult for a rider who is used to a more upright (regular) position, since steering/balancing is probably different. You can't just "rotate your butt" but have to sway your whole upper body. (Or am I wrong?) In your 80 miles on V2, on top on the miles on V1 you must have gotten used to it. Is it now really comfortable for you to ride so low down, or is it just "tolerable" and do you do really have it that low for aerodynamics? Do you think you might want to go even lower, after still more miles?

    Very funny. One of the best pictures in August

    Seriously: Not only the joke, but also the composition of the picture is very good. The main object is in the middle with excellent contrast to the wall, colors are very balanced and the wooden fence on the left mirrors the brightness of your clothes on the right.

    I feel very comfortable on that position. I'm not done with the exploration stage yet though...

    Comments please!!!
    i feel bad not commenting until now...

    i keep getting distracted by your helmet. that is my only comment. i guess what you say is more important than what we can see

    and that music makes me want to kill myself because i can not figure out the rhythm!

    ok i will say more. it is hard to tell because there are no close-ups in your video. a couple high quality pictures of you in riding position would be nice.

    Is there a way to mount a set of handles lower than the spline bar, just to try it?
    I got video during the weekend...You will notice I'm still closer to vertical than horizontal...I'll post the video as soon as I can.

    I could remove the stem I currently have between the spline-bar and the aerobars. This will lower my front end for about 3 to 4 inches...

    Thanks for the input.

    You'd probably have to make it a clamp itself, and not simply clamp it on.
    See:

    Is it a good setup? Mine works quite well.

    The best way to fix it is to drive 1.5 hours to my house in Santa Cruz and have me weld it.

    yeah, well, I dont know what's the point of building another handlebar if you buy a Pi Bar, unless you want a long handle bar. I guess you could do something with a stem to hold it strait and make it stiffer.
