    I'm trying to find out who makes these handlebars:



    Any info on these or ones that are similar would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    Hard to tell from that angle, but they're either On One Midge bars, Origin 8 gary bars, or WTB Dirt Drops. I think they're the Garys though.

    Between the 3 I'd get the Midges.

    You should probably know that these things are all wider than your standard 38cm awesome fixie skid bars.

    Well I am building my first fixie, so I'm still deciding on handlebars. I know I don't want bullhorns, and I do like risers and drops. I mostly be using for long rides, not tricks.

    honestly, for longer rides my bullhorns satisfy me the most. more than my road drops, and more than flat bars as well as risers.

    Well, those EightInch bikes are sold on ebay by wheelsandsprockets I am guessing it is these, which are made by origin8: http://wheelandsprocket.com/itemdetails.cfm?id=8223

    YMMV, but I totally prefer road drops with brake levers. They give you 90% of the bullhorn type bullhorn-ness and you also get a lower, more aero hand position also.

    I ride with bullhorns and on a long ride they are really nice. But I do want to go to drops now.
