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)

no clue how you could tell for sure, but from that pic, the "horn" looks way smaller than any mass produced bar... flip and chop maybe?

I really think he is! Look at the neck.. the strap follows the contour of the neck hole in the shirt.

If that really is a faux-messenger bag I think I need to find a new hobby...

^ ^ ^ can't be... the drop is too shallow and the flat is much longer on the first pic.

I'm pretty sure those are the Syntace Stratos bar with the slight drop. My friend has them and they look exactly like that.

Or. Maybe, they're flop and chopped Randonneur bars.

There was another thread about this, the consensus was that they were Syntace. They are definitely NOT Nitto 18s or the Soma bars.
