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)

Easton EA50 bar, Felt stem, Cane Creek SCR-5 levers & white bar tape. I think I'm done screwing around with it now, and it's time to just ride it.

Yeah, they're just generic chromed plastic plugs. I was gonna get some nice ones. . . but then I realized that I wouldn't notice the difference.

My current FSA Wing Pro drops are a bit too narrow for me, so I found some wider Easton EA30 Wing drops, used.


Grey Fizik microtex bartape for them. Not happy with the lack of padding though.



Came across an insane deal at Jenson so I picked up some Easton Deltaforce aero/flattop bullhorns I've been wanting forever


Black All-City track grips for them ^

Goml, can you post a better picture of your brake setup? Can you still ride near the stem if you have a lever on there?

They're on sale at JensonUSA for $30 shipped! How can you resist at that price? Like you, I've been missing bullhorns, but for the past year. So easy to climb with the damn things, and the flattops (just like what I have on my road drops) are real easy on the palms/wrists.
