Tightening the folding elbows did the trick. They no longer fold (without an allen wrench to loosen them back up), but they no longer vibrate like crazy, and they're low profile, which I like. I hear a lot of good things about the Ken Sean / Bikemasters, but I just don't like how they look. I really really like those Doubletakes. I want to complain about the price, but with cost of the ProCycle folders and the under-bars I had on previously, it would not be a legitimate complaint.

Of course. ProCycle just added the Doubletake Mirrors to their TW200 page at what appears to be an amazing price (compared to Doubletake's own website). $24 for one full mirror vs $48 on their site?

Edit 20130816: Dangit, went to go order the ProCycle Doubletakes and they corrected the price from $23.95 to $47.95.

Anyone know if the stock cables will work with the Powermadd 2" risers?

From what I've read on the tw200forum they should work just fine.

Nice bike, I like the skateboard seat pan/fender.

No front brake though yikes! I have minimal stopping power with dual drums, I can't imagine running rear only - mine is practically useless!

Lol, agreed.

The rear brake on my TW is all but useless.

Thank you!

Trying to decide if I want to go for Pro Taper ATV-HI's, or just add risers..

My concern with the ProTaper ATV is that all the atv bars I've seen have too much rearward sweep (for my taste). I haven't held the ProTapers, I need to stop by a shop and try them out.

The Tusk 30mm spacer have helped. I might throw on a taller moto bar and call it good. The spacers actually helped alleviate some back pain from being hunched over.
