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)

That bike would be exponentially more attractive if it lost the risers in place of some track drops.

Or pursuit bars

Those are made like a mile down the street from me. They had this show last weekend where they put some crazy nice bikes on display and had this presentation on them, but I had to write a paper

i think its a great looking bike, and i do agree with track drops or pursuit bars on it instead of risers. great craftsmanship overall

i second the drops and they would be pretty hot ! i think id go with a little bit smaller rim to, im not feeling the h pluss style to much.. If i see a bunch of carbon fiber my opinion could be changed though!

I was going to fix "track drops" to say pursuit bars, but I see you already did it.

I like the look of those bikes, but I die a little inside every time I see them with risers. That would be ALMOST as awesome as that bike with Ourys on aerobars on moustache bars, except I know the people who put risers on pursuit frames aren't joking. I've got a picture in my mind, though, and with some red-taped pursuit bars that bike looks all kinds of yummy.
