Setting up drop handlebar bikes for young riders – Parts 5 to 7

28 April 2014

Here are Parts 5 to 7 of our major video feature showing how to set up a drop handlebar road, track or cyclocross bike for a young rider. We look in  more detail at  handlebar size & position, at brake lever position & reach, and at the important subject of crank length.
