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)

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.
