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)

interesting -- they do look a little heavy, and i'd be a little bit concerned about the middle area being open to the elements (so that junk could get inside the bars).

those are neat, you could always put some plugs in the open ends to keep 'stuff' out

looking a second time, i think it'd be tricky to get a brake lever on there anywhere, but maybe that's the point.

with oury's you'd fit a break alright. they do look heavy though.. and for some reason i have trouble trusting welded together bars, not that they'd break.

My name is Nate (from Long Beach) I have started a line of custom riser bars we are now ready to produce and we are ready to release LAFIXED.

This is a grassroots company as of right now. I would love nothing more than to say we got out start selling to riders on this forum plus our first sale will be directly donated to it.

As of now we are making 3 styled

2 inch rise

3 inch rise

3 inch rise with middle bar

We are about to get some powdercoated this week but as of right now we are spray bombing them in 5 colors

Flat Black
Gloss Black
Gloss Red
Metallic Blue
Gloss White

Below are some pics

3inch rise and 3 inch rise with bars


2 inch rise



They have about a 10 degree offset so they arent just straight


Close up of the welds



On my bike



If you are interested we will be selling them for $40 plus shipping

Please email me at Nate@hyphybikes.com and specify which bars you would like and I will tell you where to send your MO.

On a side note there are frames and stems in the works. Support your local community.


straight off of lafixed, i think he's doing bullhorns too

Not good for me...I ride so fast that the openings will have a flute effect...maybe I should drill more openings in it and play Yankee Doodle Dandy when I ride : )

I really like them, nice bike too. Do you think these could handle the stress of BMX? If so, I know a few people that would love them.
