New Steering Arms for the Milan

Made new steering arms for the Milan. The original steering arms looked rather ratty and where too close to the wheel wells to provide enough space for the brake levers.

I simply cut down two bar ends and drilled holes for the plain bearings. The actual levers are two length of 22mm aluminum tube and go into the (former) bar ends. If I ever get the idea I absolutely need carbon fiber steering arms, I only have to swap the aluminum tubes for CFK tubes.


DIY steering arm clamp with plain bearing made from a bar end (27g).


Left steering arm (from top to bottom): DiaCompe Silver Shifter for 2-speed Patterson Metropolis, throttle, Avid brake lever, 3 momentary switches, lever for rear disk brake


Right steering arm (from top to bottom): DiaCompe Silver Shifter for 9-speed derailleur, Avid brake lever, 3 momentary switches, Grin poti for Cycle Analyst v3

Not sure which function to assign to which momentary switch. Also, I still have to install the Tripwire switches to the brake levers.
