    Factory singlespeed w/out drop bars

    Would love to try out the new Raleigh One-Way. Are there any singlespeeds like the One-Way or Bianchi San Jose with less of a road stance and possibly adjustable stems and no drop bars.
    Not a heavy beach cruiser. I guess I could change the stem and bars on the Raleigh but would still have to deal with changing brake levers too?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    You can get bars for like 20 bucks new, why let it be an ultimate deciding factor?
    I ride with pants so tight that they're spandex.

    9.2.5? Order a Rob Roy without bars and brakes and add your own?

    Changing bars, brake levers, pedals and other ridiculously simple adjustments should not be part of the equation when considering what bike to buy.

    A decent shop will let you trade out items like this to fit your needs.

    Seriously, bar style is a really bad criteria to choose a complete bike by. Esp. that there's no expensive brifters with a ss. Buy the frame you like and haggle with your lbs.
