Eh? The bike's not even built, the brake inners are just hanging loose. I am intrigued by the idea that someone actually makes clip-on drops though.
Not wanting to say it's beautifull, but sometimes comfort and budget is more important than looks. Clip on drops (Origin 8 )on a bikepacking race bike (not mine).

That's a much better way of using them. The thing that's really tickling me about the other one is that it's set up with road brake levers and nothing on the flat bar :lol:

Yeah, that's ugly. But I'd like to think it's a way to keep riding after a back injury/surgery.
