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)

The dumbest/best bars e-var

I think I'm going to add a set of these to the inner flats of my riser bars:

From this advancement, I will gain another hand position, some hill-descending speed, and the goofiest-looking bar setup ever.

These on the ends of the bars would actually create something I wish existed- dirt drops with rise. Again, totally dorky looking.

Yee haw. I wonder if they run Linux?

(sorry, wrong forum)

+1 for the utility factor.

I've seen the same idea, only more curvy. They look exactly like a second set of drops.

better be some perfect welds, but more positions is always good, specially on a long haul.



be careful not to rip yer kneecaps off if you go into a sprint suddenly

For sure- I think I'm going to splash red paint on the ends and nick up the powdercoat with a chain a little before mounting. That ought to keep people out of my way!

Your bars are non-os specific. Most handlebar attachments (such as spedometers) run a proprietary OS, but you can get a linux powered horn

I'm sure you know this already, but the diameter of risers isn't the same as the diameter of drops
(and i'm not just talking clamp diameter here)

so you might need a 1/16" shim to get these to work....
