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)

My old Schwinn Super Le Tour conversion with RB-021's:



I know it's not a good shot of the stem/handlebars, but it's all I have, because the bike has been restored back to the original, geared setup.

Youre own bike inspired you to choose the bars you already had? What?

Funny that you ask...
I always thought this bike just had a mean look to it. But bullhorns are ugly - they're all out function in my book and that's what makes them beautiful. Pulling into the ends of bullhorns while going up a hill is the fixed gear ecquivalent to shifting down on your road bike.

Edit: also, the bike MIN posted because the thing just looks like you could take it 0-30mph in about 10 seconds.

I chose my Nitto 018s because when trying to ride a lil more aero the curve reminded me of riding on the brake hoods in drop bars...they're real comfy but kind of wide for the city.

Bullhorns let you have some of the same hand positions as road drops with STI levers, but without road drops and STI levers.
