My neighbors probably think I'm crazy

Cross practice started yesterday.  After a few laps on pavement around the subdivision to warm up I did some laps around the backyard on my makeshift cross course.  It's got some short, steep little hills to power up.  I set up some barriers to get over.  It made me want to yak.

I had some dope new bars as well.

Are your brake cables reversed?

No.  they are on my single speed though. 

 

That was the first bike I ever took apart and put back together.  (back when it was geared).  I got everything back together and working and took it for a ride only to realize that I had the brakes reversed.

That's the Euro setup.  After your rides you must now drink Belgian ales.

many people that race CX will reverse the brakes so they can skid to a stop/dismount and portage the bike more easily.

I read that somewhere once.  I don't seem to have a problem so far with stopping/skidding.  Will the backwards brake cables help to accelerate my fat ass out of the corners quicker?  If so I will go switch them today.

I still think you are weird for not doing full wrap on the bars.  The bars are sexy as hell though!

I may still do that.  I will prob get new tape and new taars for Cx season.  Will decide then.  But they will not look as dope if they are fully wrapped.
