    Flat Bar Vaya?

    Is anyone running a flatbar on your Vaya? A recent back injury may have me re-tooling my cycling habit. I saw one on ebay not to long ago and I wonder how it works. I recently floated this very question only with the Fargo, not the Vaya, and got a lot of negative feedback. Just putting it out there. If you have some photos and have some spare time, I would appreciate see it.
    Thanks in advance for your feedback and time.

    My Fargo with a flat bar was my favorite setup:



    I can't see a Vaya being any different, the cockpit geometry is very similar.

    I miss that Fargo....

    I dont have any pictures, but have set up a bunch of flatbar Vayas for customers, including a friend of mine that just got a Vaya 3 for a cycle tour in Japan...

    Usually I'd say go a frame size bigger than you would for regular set up (so you dont need to run a 130mm stem) and you can set them up to feel great...

    On the Fargo front, I have a Ti set up with a swept flat bar and it is a DREAM to ride... Like with anything, if you do it right it'll be right, if you dont it won't...
