The next major component to be added to my Windsor Clockwork was a Nitto Noodle 44cm handlebar. This is a beautiful component, very lightweight and smoothly rounded.
After positioning the brake levers, I wrapped the bar with Cinelli tan cork tape, and plugged the ends with sanded wine corks. I used orange vinyl electrical tape for finishing the bar tops. I covered the levers with Cane Creek tan gum rubber hoods. These were, unfortunately, a bit too big. They were squishy and flimsy to hold as a result. Later on, I solved the problem by padding the metal lever bodies on all sides with strips of rubber, cut to shape and attached with double-stick tape. The hoods then fit snugly on the levers.
Here's one of the MKS Sylvan touring pedals that I installed. I have Power Grips coming, and also clips and straps. I'll decide on one of these options after trying them both.
Here's the bike as I left it on Saturday night after these parts were put on. It had rained all day, so I needed to wait for a riding opportunity.
On Sunday we finally had a beautiful, 60 degree morning - perfect for an inaugural ride with the new setup. You can see the Planet Bike Protege 9.0 cycle computer that I installed. Also, a very handsome Knog Maxi saddlebag holds my tools and spare tubes.
