Just a suggestion, upgrade your stem and handlebars at the same time. Something like an Easton EA70 bar. Does the whistler have an adjustable stem? If it does, by now you have learned what angle you like for a stem. A one piece stem is stronger and lighter. If you wish to remain with an adjustable stem, there is the Ritchey adjustable. I am going to spring for the upgrade, not that the factory components are bad, on the contrary, it is nice to have been able to find the position that I wanted. The drop bars are a VERY GOOD idea in my opinion.WASYLBRYTAN wrote:I have been complaining about the low capacity of my battery and wishing that I could get longer range but I came across another idea which I am working on. If I can find the right configuration of triathlon aero bars to fit my Whistler I may be able to improve my aerodynamics and increase my range that way. I have found several cheap units from China but their clamp sizes do not seem to match my handlebars. Bill
I have a front basket, I'll have to work out the details of that as the drop bars will interfere. The basket is on a quick release, perhaps I could find drop bars that were as well.
