    Crazy idea

    Lately I've seen a lot of really really really short handle bars on fixed gear bikes. I think the next stage will be no handlebars at all! You'll just steer with an Oury covered stem. It'll be kind of like a rudder.

    I asked some cats about this--they echoed what I
    guessed it was about. Cars. Traffic. Lane splitting.

    I've tried riding with just a stem after a crash broke off the faceplate. It doesn't work very well...

    Would you say that it's just crazy enough to work?

    I've seen some crazy Narrow bars. There's a guy in Providence who looks like he just cut the curved sections off his drop bars. There's just barely room for a fist and a brake lever on each side.
