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)

If he has to set up his bars like that to be comfortable, he's doing something else wrong.

Okay, my mistake. I thought you were implying my criticism of his bars was aesthetic in nature.

Google search "Read the thread." Those aren't RB-021's. They're Syntace Stratos with a big drop.
