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)

grips

I was looking to get some Champ grips for my bullhorns but don't think one pair will cover the whole area of the bar that I regularly use. Do any companies make grips longer than 160ish mm? Any other suggestions? Getting sick of dealing with tape. Oh yes, looking for green.

This has been posted before...dunno where it is though. Some of the posted examples use Ourys on the tops and Champs on the extensions.

The setup intrigues me, except it would be all wonky trying to put a brake cable under the Ourys. Suppose you could always run the cable inside the bar though.
