|Hmm. These were "North Road"-style bars.|
But the left side has been bent in the crash.
|The lower side has been bent in the crash.|
Hoppy escaped the crash pretty lightly - indeed a badly bent handlebar seems to be the extent of the damage.
But I can't ride like that, so a bit of repair is in order!
|The shorter grips from my parts box work better on the shorter bar.|
Clearly "good enough", because this picture is from the second half of my 40 mile trip to High Wycombe hospital and back.
The shorter grips it is, then!

|The family bikes.|
As you can seee, Hoppy's new, taller, bars, aren't that far off the bike on the left.
the "workhorse" is, of course, the bike with panniers and a steel basket in the middle!
