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)

What is the difference between eastom EA50 monkey bars and easton EA50 riser bars?

Well the title says it all.

easton site lists EA50 Riser Bars and EA70 Monkey Bars, but no EA50 Monkey Bars. it seems to imply that the EA70 uses a better alloy, probably stiffer and stronger for its weight. the monkey bar looks like it has less of a rise than the riser bar.


you should get the carbon downhill riser bar.

There is also the EA50 XC bar, which is just a flat bar. I say go for the Monkey Riser. It has the word "monkey" in it.

I did something even better. I went to my LBS and bought some Titec bars.
They are called HellBent and have the word "hell" in them.

Hella nice low rise and cost me the price of a decent burrito.

I can't wait to get the new Azonic Ninja-Robot-Vampire-Monkey-Cowboy-Pirate-Zombie bars. They are supposed to cost $80 and weigh a few pounds, but the name is worth it.

Well I like Slayer, the Misfits and skateboard graphics by Pushead.

You seem more of a Paul Frank kind of guy.

To each their own own I guess.

Don't make fun of it now - you are the one that started this monkey business.

Will sell you a $1,000 omelette! Makes a $20 burrito look like the biggest bargain ever.

Making it is easy, selling it is what's hard.
But yeah, if you make me one that is worth $20 and tastes like $20 I'll buy it.

Most expensive burrito I had was in Nappa. It cost $15.
