Waiting for a longer stem and compact drop bar. That was just a test fit. No tape is one thing, but riding without bar plugs is asking for trouble. Excellent catch.

Not fixed, but it's a track frame that I built up as a single-speed.

based on lack of half link chain and non-horizontal dropouts.... he used luck of the draw with his gearing

Cannondale is on 32h Record Pista hubs and Velocity Escape rims, with Challenge Paris Roubaix tubs. The GT has 36h Dura Ace hubs and Kinlin XR300 rims, with Veloflex Master clinchers.

Agreed - no plugs is super dangerous. Saw a friend take a core sample from his thigh.

As I said in top of the post - I wrapped and plugged both bars last night. Hopefully going to have a friend take some proper photos this weekend.
