    Custom Bars

    So- in the spirit of Indie.
    Looking into builders who do custom work or design limited pieces.
    Any recomendations?
    I saw these the other week- don't know if anyone else has.

    Not tring to cop anyone elses style- just looking out for a good builer to work with.

    Much respect to the owner & builder of these bars. If you're on forums-

    I hadn't seen those before.
    - makes them feel a bit less special
    - still a nice design

    Has anyone seen other bars like these "recently". The newer style aero bars just dont have the same curvature to them.

    HAHAHA Those are really odd looking. I can see Lemond rocking those up an Alpe in some Yellow and Day Glo with some "blade" sunglasses.

    the shop where I work had 3 sets of those as old stock from the 80's. They gave me all 3 pairs, I chopped one off where they are about 4 inches apart. they are really rad bars. I'm sitting on 2 more pairs trying to figure out if I want to keep them. oh, and they're definitely scotts. I'll try and make pictures later.

    I'd post a recommendation, but Shants would tell you they're F'ers and ought to be melted. Whatever.
