    Resurrected LHT

    After using my LHT for a solid 4 years I decided to sell the frame 5 months ago. It seems that a steel touring frame is not a seller in an environment flooded with aluminum and carbon bikes. So I decided to built it up again as a townie ride. Went for a ride this morning and I must say I love the new upright position.

    Sweet. My cockpit is similar and I also really appreciate the upright position. What handlebar are you using? Nice to see the v-brakes, as well.

    The bars are the Misfit Fubar. They're pretty comfy for the intended application.

    Nice! Someday I will swap all of my parts from my "wife's" Cannondale T500 to a LHT frame. So how do you like the FuBars? I have contemplated them vs. other alt bars...

    So far the Fubar has been great. It's like any touring/ urban bars but with a wider width and pretty heavy duty( thicker tubing). I recommend it. I'm thinking of replacing my other commuter's Bonty Satelite bars with the Fubar because of the width.
