I really like the bars.From doing the fitting it was noticed I wasnt having much if at all angle change for hips or back when going from hoods to drops.My fitter noticed i had long arms so suggested i change to these from my previous ergonava pros..Noticeable different when riding.I don't feel so cramped when sprinting in the drops and the reach suits me.I feeel stronger riding in the drops now.Generating power seeme easier now

I love the color, very bold. What made you skip the IF steel fork? I just got a Crown Jewel as well and opted for the steel fork. I thought if I didn't like it I could just set it aside and run one of my carbon forks instead. Turns out their steel forks are superb. I hope you love this bike as much as I love mine. My Crown Jewel is the best bike I've ever owned.

I rode 2 IF's .One with steel fork and one with carbon.I just felt the carbon one felt better under me and I liked the look of it also.Not very technical reasons I know :lol:

It is the best bike I have ridden.No way is this one going anywhere.Going custom was the best choice.From the first 5 minutes of riding it felt like I had owned it for years..It does everything my old carbon bike didn't do

You've gone the extra mile. It now looks much better with the matching forks. Well done.

Gotta love the matching bike stand! Really though, fantastic bike and the repainted fork really brought it together nicely.

those changes really set it off. the decals on the wheels even help to balance out the 'loud' crank.
