View Full Version : Alternate handlebar placing on The Street Fox

Hi everyone,
Just a quick look through the forums and I don't see any mention of this - a steering/handlebar modification to the Street Fox. Has anyone thought about running the handlebars not from the top of the head tubes but up from the brake support arms? The actual handle placement would be very close to the original position but would be a much shorter handle length and shorter runs for the brake and/or shifter cables. I believe the forces/stress on the brake support arm would not necessitate beefing it up - it must be as strong or stronger than most handlebars IMHO.
Any thoughts?

I don't see know reason why that wouldn't work. You could just tack them in place to see how comfortable it feels to you. Don't be afraid to experiment. You could always revert back to the original set up
