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)

Nitto Dream Bars

No, not the actual Nitto dream bars... I've been looking to experiment with some more eccentric upright handlebars. Now, I remember looking at a web page with a much wider selection of Nitto bars then I seem to be able to find now. Including more square-shaped north road bars, something comparable to the Soma Noah's Arc bar but with some drop, something like the Soma Noah's Arc that was a perfect semi-circle, etc...

I've been searching and I'm beginning to think that I had a dream about sweet, eccentric bicycle parts. If that's the case, I guess it's time to invest in a tube bender.

Question 1: Do these weird bars exist?

Question 2: Have any of you had dreams about non-existant bikes/parts?

i have had dreams in which i ride a much nicer bike than i actually do... but i've never dreamed of specific non-existant parts.

however: i have been looking for a shirt i saw once. it's a huge pack of riders on the front and it says SWARM over it. anyone seen that anywhere or was it a dream too?

sorry for the thread hijack.

maybe check the rivendell catalog

there is a nitto "dream bar," but it's a little more mundane than what i think you're describing... http://www.rivbike.com/webalog/handl...ape/16081.html

You're thinking of the nitto promenade bars.

Check out near the bottom of the page. Ben's cycles has pretty good prices on them.

Wow, that's getting bookmarked for sure.

anyone know of the $18 Velo Racing saddle they have listed is this one? . I need a new saddle of a similar style on a VERY limited budget. I'm guessing the $18 is a cheap one that sucks though.

real narrow promenade bars, say like 39cm, would be the hotness if you flipped them over and had them like bullhorns
