The old man bike

Don’t call it a hybrid!

That’s right, I’ve officially given up on drop bars. My neck and my back thank me, and I get to upset all the roadies blowing by them up Sunshine (2000 foot climb up to almost 8k feet today – on December 2nd! Outrageous!)

In any case, I am now practicing what I preach (I’ve ranted about how great flat bar road bikes are before), I guess, in that I look goofy but I’m comfortable.
