“I modified it to my needs. It was far more aggressive but I changed that. The handlebars are turned back and it is much better.”
Photographer’s notes: It is an odd aspect to a bike, how some basic changes can alter the style of ride. This rider chose to turn his handlebars back and gain a more upright position – far calmer. My bike has the reverse. The handlebars allow me to stretch out and get a far more aggressive position. That and the super-high seat and low handlebars.
This way, an aggressive bike can be calmed – and a lesser bike can be made far more able to assert authority over the other riders.
