SKYELANDER DISC COCKPIT
Bars: The Skyelander 700c comes with the super strong and stiff heat treated Nitto Dirt Drop RM-013 touring bars, in either silver or black. We can fit flat bars if preferred.
"The slightly flared handlebar is a good match for the bike, providing surer steering than a narrow road drop handlebar on country lanes
awash with mud" - Dan Joyce, editor of Cycle (Cycling UK)
Shifters: Shifting is via Microshift bar-end shifters which are highly durable and reliable. Friction controls shifting the front derailleur and a choice of indexed or friction control the rear, it takes a matter of seconds to switch from one to the other.
Levers: see Skyelander Disc brakes
The stem: We offer both ahead and quill, silver or black
The ahead is a Zenith hollow forged AL6061-T6 aluminium stem
Our standard quill stem is the Nitto Technomic (silver)
Tape: I've never used such comfortable tape as this - it's Profile Design cushioned Drive bar tape in black. Brooks bar tape is available as an upgrade
Bars, stem, seatpost and headset available in black or silver
