At last, some positive encouragement to get the butterflies fitted! Darrell, from Manchester – remember him? – he is cycling the route of the Pennine Cycleway this summer and I sent him my maps (which he has kindly acknowledged on his own website with some very nice comments, thanks Darrell!). He has just posted the following comment to the previous post;
Just got a Santos Travelmaster 2.6 Alu with butterfly handlebars – lovely gorgeous riding positions. Upright when you want control and braking, stretched, efficient and COMFORTABLE, for long pulls/straights. Haven’t needed the outside edges yet. GET ONE, GET ONE! I doubt very much you will regret it.
That does it; I’m investing!!!
