    well i like my flat bars on my mtn bike. I only have one bike and thats my XC rig, if i was on a road bike ide want drop though. These handlebars have something like a 5 degree bend inward though so they are not completely flat and straight

    Thats pretty cool looking. How well do they handle? They look kind of unweildly to me.

    I was thinking of building up my Nishiki International as a fixie.

    english classic. I have them on my 2 and 3 speed cruisers. They're just a very "fun" handlebar for rides around the park. Absolutely horrible position from an aerodynamic point of view but great for a short ride down to the post office and back.
    Life's too short to not ride in the rain

    Good old-fashioned "Old Lady" bars. I've got 'em on my Triumph cruiser and my five-speed. Flat bars on my Bauer.
    I'm too young to be this old!
