Hunqapillar Harlequin Drops, a set on Flickr.
This was my latest bar work. After a recent fit, I decided to set up both of my main rides with similar cockpits and dimensions to minimize bodily pain. I’ve also been slowly beginning to favor drop bars. I did a dual harlequin wrap on Nitto 42cm Noodles putting the diamonds on the straight parts. This keeps them well-shaped and avoids the warped diamonds you get on curves. I used Newbaums Maroon and Yellow with amber shellac finish (three coats). I also video taped some of the wrap work and hope to edit an post my first video blog soon.
