I'm not sure what brand it is.

I bought it a long time ago for a different bike, and just now found it.
It has like a carbon fiber texture thing going.

Nicely done Max. I've got to learn how to wrap bars properly.

Glad to see that you are running brakes on your fixie.

Oh, and Hi, and nice job on the bar wraps. A good wrap job is a very satisfying feeling to me.

They are not wrong. And the brakes is so I don't crash into stuff.

I bet you let your mind wander and it ran away, thats why you say the bars are "wrong" and hatin on my brakes

Edit: The bars are fine where I live, I don't need to squeeze through NYC traffic.

but I thought the whole point of having a fixie is that then you don't need brakes

you really need deep profile pink rims, too, that bike is way too 'straight'

you might as well have left the gears and freewheel on the damn thing...

I bought it like this silly.

My parents insist on brakes.
