    Those bars sure do seem angled up a bit. To each their own, but that is a pretty drastic angle in the video.

    Got into a road accident yesterday on my new road hit by a scooter , got 5 stitches on my left eyelid in the emergency ward…wasnt wearing a helmet as it was close to my house (so stupid of me) & my hands were an inch far from the brakes (was just used to my mtb & its easy braking) couldnt reach them on time.. (so the position on the bars in traffic has to be perfect)..Just telling riders my experience so you can learn from me..:)
