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)

Bullhorns with no drop?

What bullhorns, other than the Profile Stoker, have no drop? I'm looking at my options for bullhorns with a flat top. Some drop is fine as long as it's after the flat top.

Nittos are straight on...on that note, anyone who can tell me of a decent stem with a drop on the cheap, I would appreciate it.

Not all the Nitto 'horns are drop free (mine for example), but the ones Business Cycles carry on non-special order are pretty flat. Just a heads up before you go orderind some Nitto 'horns on the assumption that they're all flat.
