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 ran this set up on my Steamroller for the longest time using the Nitto Dirt Drop stem with Nitto moustache bars.

It isn't the cool thing to put on a tarck bike but paired with drops on a bike that will see dirt I think they look pretty badass.

Edit: nice ****ing steamroller roadfix

You need drops up high off-road. Like, hoods level with the seat.
