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)

Modolo Q Krono Bullhorns

I did a search and didn't come up with much informtion about these and we all know how us hipsters LOVE bullhorns, so I thought I'd post up some pics.






I went for these because they've got a nice deep drop and they're different. And different = expensive. I paid $60 + 5 shipping (they cost $10 to ship BTW, thanks King Kog).

They seem nice so far, but I've yet to ride them because my bike doesn't have wheels. I know I shouldn't let something stupid like that stop me, but I don't think my bike stand will support the extra weight.

Anyhoo, another bullhorn option for ya.

I have some of those, or looks just like those. Pretty comfy, but the steep angle on the 'drops' can get a little weird sometimes because of the way your wrists are bending.

I got them free thanks to yellowfixedgear.

I have some Modolo road bars and they're pretty flexy. Just sayin'.

Yeah, I was noticing that yesterday when I mounted them. They may have to point slightly upward.
