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)

Sette Duo's.

I searched it already so don't get mad.
I was wondering about the Sette Duo bars, has anyone had experience with them?
I want to order risers and ourys tonight, so what would your reccomendations be also.
Thank you.

P.S.
What is the difference between these 2, i know there different metals, but which should i get if i get the bars.

7075 is stronger, 2014 is less expensive. i run a pair of sette flats that are 2014 on my mtb and it seems fine.

Since they are MTB handlebars, and assuming you will just ride them on the street, they are probably both overbuilt for what you need. Both are strong enough. One of them is a few grams lighter if that matters, and one is 2 bucks cheaper. Get the cheaper one and buy 2 double cheesebugers from McD's.

I have the cheaper ones. They work fine. They have a tiny bit of sweep but I dont mind. I just had them cut at my LBS and slapped some ourys on them.
