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)

chicago: SURLY STEAMROLLER w/ welded bars on fork?

Anyone ever see this bike?

It's a brown Surly w/ like mountain bike bar ends welded onto the fork. They're on the front of the fork (or sides) and face down.

I hope the dude isn't holding onto those when he's riding...

Yeah, I saw that dude riding once when I was on foot and waiting to cross the street. He wasn't using those "low bars" though. I wished I could have asked to see him using them. I also wanna know.

I rode with him for a while in the terror trials in 2004... Unless a lot of people weld bars onto their forks in Chicago. He used the super bars for a short time while I was with him. The name slips my mind right now.

Bike polo, eh?

I'm not a mind reader. Four letters would of equaled an uncanny amount of clarity.

PS - Never heard of bike polo. Never seen it. Nothing. Nada.

Maybe I'll use that fancy search feature & do my homework. Oh lordy!

Be careful, polo might damage your fancy track bike. Best leave it to the conversion hordes.
