The picture shows the new steering mast and handlebar installed on a Sprint NT. There is about 5 cm of height adjustment so you can fine tune the fit once it is inside the Borealis. The mast makes getting in and out a bit different from before. You can still step onto the ground through the footholes but it is easier to just stand on the frame and sit down. I avoided trying this before as I didn't want to mess up the paint on the frame. I found when I tried this that I actually stepped on the composite bracket that wraps around the curciform to attach the shell to the frame. There is a little area in the middle where you could still step on the paint but a bit of protective film over this area would solve that issue.
