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)

I'll withhold judgement on the other components, but I think the bar ends look sweet. Where did you get them? A google search has left me nothing.

You're ugly. So there.

To the OP: Where did you find them and how much did they cost?

Though unpopular, bar ends on flat bars can be a great alternative to bullhorns.

I thought they were threadless stems that someone had chopped, but I ended up with this: http://www16.ocn.ne.jp/~nitto210/

As a dealer I can get them through Merry Sales. VERY few were made this time around, so I hear. Talk to your local fixie shop and they may be able to order a few.

If memory serves, a mountain bike company made some just like these in the early '90s. Who was that?

I got these from Merry Sales. I personally love nub ends liek these, i use them on all of my bikes. It's my most comfortable most powerful position. Climbing hills, doing tricks, or cruising, its comfortable for me. I've broken both of my wrists so many times my rotation isnt great, so i love them. like my bike or hate my bike, i really dont care. cause I love this bike

Yeah, bullhorns are great, but don't always fit the bill. I run a similar setup to this a lot, but at 36cm the only way I could get bullhorns in the size I want would be to chop track bars, and then the shape would be all wrong. This way you can achieve variations not available with prefab bullhorns.
