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)

Photos of flipped risers

Hey- My brother was interested in the flipped riser look, but wanted to see some photos of what it looked like first. I thought I had some good ones on my compie, but can't find them. Anybody have any good photos of nice bikes with flipped riser bars? Thanks!
