Over the last week, I've seen about 10 bikes running around town with ape hangers. Over the weekend sport touring around southern Oregon I saw one group of five or so cruiser types all with ape hangers. Is there something in the water? I can think few stupider trends than ape hangers. Let's put a long flexible piece of tubing between the controls and the contact patch. Now lets stick our arms out wide and hold our chest up so we get lots of wind blast. Looks uncomfortable as hell and is probably dangerous. I guess its another on one of those style over function things. Sort of like guys who wear their pants so low that they can barely walk. And yeah, no one really does want to look at your fat ass. Thankfully, that one seems to be going away, but ape hangers are gaining ground. WTF. Ok, end of rant. Anyone else seeing this?
