    They are just flat bars cut short.

    eddie's just pissed cuz NYCers think he's made up and a figment of our collective imaginations.

    It's okay eddie, you'll be a real boy someday.

    haha, I was thinking that yesterday myself.

    I think there must me a correlation between having a Don Walker frame. I used to me pretty friendly, now I hate pretty much everyone.

    I don't know what Shant's excuse is... perhaps it has something with that dumb French bike of his.

    I've seen him.
    He existed at least long enough to stop by the Lakeside for a pint and some parts...

    That bike looks odd. Theres no balance between the front and the back.

    Best way of cutting down flat bars is to buy a hose clamp and a file. The hose clamp will work as a pretty decent cutting guide, enabling you to get a flat cut. The file will enable you to quickly dress the cut end. Or you can just slap some grips on there and not care.

    Most bike shops dealing with 2nd shops (or your local bike kitchen/bike recycle centre) will have a ton of cheap flat/mtb bars. Should be able to get a decent pair for 5 bones.

    The pinched nerve in my left hand warns you not to use flat bars on long rides.
    They're arent enough placement options.

    yeah, teensy flatbars look silly. i just put a set on my bike. wider than my bullhorns and drops, still narrow. look funny, feel stable in some ways, uncomfy in other ways.

    i practice vagabondery.

    i mean, there's just no way not understand that. wheels you could be uncertain of tubie vs clincher, stem possibly threadless/threaded if you're a tard or if it's indistinct, even something as mundane as a seatpost has various options which might beg clarification, but if all's you can see is a circle then it's obviously a flat bar, and it doesn't take much to hazard a guess that it's sawed-off, and under those circumstances i doubt that even the most eagle-eyed parts whöre could tell if it was easton carbon or a $5 nashbar ally, so WHAT IS THE OP ASKING?

    Well, eddie look at the previous posts of the OP. His first was almost as idiotic as this one, though this sure takes the cake.
    (For lazy ppl: "can you put free wheel on a track bike w/horizontal drop outs" then "yeah i want to have a rear break is why i ask")

    mazen is either a troll or... well, I can't think of anything offensive enough that wouldn't come out as *****

    no, the best way to cut down bars is with a pipe cutter...
    you'd be amazed by the results you get when you use the proper tools...
