    What have I done?!?!?! Gunnar Cross Hairs is *****in'!

    From my world famous website:

    Cross Hairs with vee's:
    That's before (cantis with drop style levers piss me off because to adjust, time can be wasted)

    And this is after:
    I filed the inside of the levers to fit on the 'stashe bars. Feels nice! better adjustement, and if I need new brakes, just look for vee's. Cantis are still cool, but they sure are a pain in the ass.

    Now look for yourself, and discuss...

    not only am I a left-handed Mexican, I can reach the levers without a problem. My hands have average girth.

    where/how did you file

    Nice work ErNestO. I've actually been considering doing something similar with my KM. I'd have it set up with the normal riser bar, but when I wanted to have different hand positions for cross riding, I'd switch to my moustache w/ vee levers already installed so I wouldn't have to mess w/ changing out brakes to match aero levers.

    How much and where did you file? Any special tools? Dremmel? Please say that you used a dremmel!!!

    By the way....are you the same ErNestO that sold me a wheelset a few years ago....surly rear and suntour front on velocity rims? If so, they've been sweet.

    No way! that's cool! I totally remember that wheelset! WAHOOOO!
    Nop, don't have a Dremmel, and was thinking of borrowing my mom's, but she lives 80 miles down in Chicago...so I used a round file I had in my tool box. Worked for me, should work for you.
