    Could I please see your Feegle bars?

    I put on my Fleegle handlebar today and somehow it just didn't 'look' right. I'm not sure what it is. When I got it tilted to that the sweep aims upward, it looks weird. When it's tilted downward, it doesn't look right either. When it's straight back, something looks amiss. I know that this is probably due to my eye being 'trained' to look at riser bars, but I'm not sure what's up. I'm not quite sure what position feels right, either.

    So I thought I'd try and get a few visual hints from you Fleegle users. Brant, any suggestions on which way to tilt this bar (if any)?

    I could possibly give you some advice concerning the "placement" or "position" of yur Fleegle......one that feels RIGHT, of course!

    Butt, I'll reserve comment.

    You're gonna show me a picture of Fleegle bars mounted on one of your bikes while you pose next to it wearing your new Salsa beanie, aren't you.

    OK, I tried a few setups. If I set it up the way I usually set up my handlebars - with the sweep aimed at my shoulders, the Fleegle looks like a riser bar mounted upside down. Functional, probably, but it's messing with me visually. The only it doesn't look messed up is if I position the sweep facing downwards, aimed towards the top of my seat tube or thereabouts.

    I have mine setup the same as yours - sweep aiming at my shoulders. I agree it looks kinda funny, but they sure are comfortable.

    Played with mine a lot and I ended up the same as you two. Up towards my shoulders. I could care less how the bars look, what's holding onto them ain't all that pretty anyway.
