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 have those levers. The only bad thing is the graphics are non-removeable.

Well the other option is to buy bars with internal cable routing, but the lever route will be cheaper.
