    midge bars

    available in black only?
    I would get them in shiny polished aluminum, if I could.
    the nitto scorchers are similar, but no.

    Get an old pair of the specialized BB1s or the WTB dirtdrops. They're not as comfy, but they're silver.

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    i've never ridden the dirt drops. but roll with the specialized BB1 on my foul weather fixie, and they are a ton of fun. they feel a touch wide to me, but i normally roll on 36's, so nearly everything feels wide - oh yeah, and they are silver (Al) as well

    the picture doesn't really give you much info on the bars, let me know if you'd like a better/more pics of the BB1's
