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)

depends on your own preference
drop bars are good and versatile, but its totally up to you

I just bought some Nitto TT pursuit bars. Wow, they're VERY light-weight. They were $34 or something like that at AEBike.com.

I ride either this old set of drops for long rides and risers for city riding.
