Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Need help identifying handlebars

I have these on a bike, but I don't know who made them ("Pista" isn't very specific--try searching for Pista handlebars). Anybody recognize the logo?

You're running yellow tires on a celeste Bianchi? What's wrong with you?

Sorry, don't know the brand on your bars.

Very helpful, thanks. The previous owner had vittoria rubinos with yellow stripes, and I rather liked the way they went with the bike's paint: it's an '01 SL Pista, and as such has yellow stripes on the top tube and chainstays.

Hell, don't worry about it. Yellow tires are faster than all other colors, especially when they're mounted on a yellow bike - so your yellow accents should put you mid-pack someplace, but definitely ahead of the Celeste snobs.

Bars look familiar, but I can't place 'em!

Sorry, celeste has just been on my brain lately - ever since I got black/celeste rubinos for my Bianchi. Seeing the yellow just had me going 'why?'

I thought that too, and checked the ones that came with mine - they had little pictures of Italy, not snakes. But it's a different year track bike...

No, the SL Pista was sold as a frameset only.

i know what bars those are. my shop has some road bars hanging around with the same logos. i can't recall the maker right this second...they might be made by fiamme, or some other italian company whose name pops up every once in a while, but never sticks with you.

i'll look at the bars we have tomorrow and let you know.
