I’ve made some changes to my bike recently, basically in order to make it a bit more practical. Front and rear mudguards, riser bars and a dirty harry brake lever. These all make it easier to handle in the city, as it’s more upright an controllable. The nasty stem is only temporary until I fit the new one i have lying around. I’ve also replaced the horrible nylon straps on the pedals with new synthetic ones from BrickLaneBikes, which are a lot more durable and don’t compress making it easier to flip the pedal round and put my foot in, which is great, especially at traffic lights!
