I am setting up some new bars and stem on my old Giant OCR2 road bike (a want for narrower bars was the only reason).
Ignoring any fit issues with me, is there a starting point for positioning the handlebars such as level with the floor as measured with a spirit level?
Once that is sorted where is the default starting point for placing the shifters?
Once this is sorted out (I want to make the bike pretty universal for friends and family to be able to ride it) I can wrap the bars.
Thanks all. I put it all together and it's OK. I think I need to twist the bars up a bit but generally they are pretty neutral. It's not really for me to ride but visitors so I wanted it flat and wondered if there was a start point.
They are Cinelli bars and actually don't curve all the way around to a flat part on the drops so that might have thrown me a bit.
New bike from old and it's pretty good to go.
