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)

Anybody here using these base-bars?

I want to get some bullhorns for my Fuji track pro for riding around the city.

Anyone have experience with these bars?

They have a similar shape to most of the carbon bullhorns out there, which I like, and they are a lot less expensive than all of the carbon ones too.

Reminds me of the original steering wheel from Knight Rider.

Needs some buttons.

Those look like they'd be kind of awkward. Do people still buy Syntace Stratos bars, because if they do then that's what I'd recommend. The whole bar is useable and they don't have any uncomfortable looking transitions.

And don't get anything with a big drop, because those are pretty ****ty for city riding.

honestly i don't know why people buy fancy aero aluminum base bars for their track bikes. i'll concede that they look good in an aggressive way, but they lack the smooth contours of their carbon counterparts (which is another debate altogether).

those PROs are similarly shaped to nitto 18s with the tips clipped off, or deda crononeros.
