comment What (kind of?) brake lever is this?
I'd love to see a video of someone using this, I imagine trying to stop suddenly with hands this close together would end in a catastrophic case of the wobbles. Which would damage your wooden bar!

Surely it should be on the left hand side of the stem.

comment Are single-sided forks a gimmick?
How do you know it loses so much strength? Cannondale frames used to have a reputation for breaking but the lefty has never had one.

I think a couple of Cannondale factory team races run a 160mm lefty on the Jekyll but a majority run a two legged fork.

comment Who else makes H-bar Loop Handlebars?
I work with an engineer who fashion his own bolt on version for lights on his drop bars. His bar has a computer on it but below that he has a second bar with a light and spare mounted. I saw it and thought it was a good solution.

comment how to translate MTB wheel specifications?
@Henry - Are you possibly meaning 3/8 BMX hubs? I think some people call them 10mm also....

comment how to translate MTB wheel specifications?
@Henry - Current MTB standard QR hubs are 9mmx100mm front and 10mmx135mm rear. Yes bolt-throughs are also 10mm. 10mm front axles have been made, but they aren't standard or are old (Shimano used them 30-40 years ago).
