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)

Just kidding

I was bored yesterday, since I spent the day at home waiting for my girlfriend to call me to pick up her and her daughter from the hospital. Rather than waste the day, I started tinkering with the various bikes I have lying around that need some work. After greasing the headset bearings on my Windsor, I threw this flat bar on it, just for laughs. I'm not a fan of flat bars on road bikes, (I have bullhorns on order for this one) but the red and yellow Easton logo certainly goes well with the red ODI clamps and yellow paint.

Would probably look better (cut down a bit) on someone else's bike, but not mine.

Hey, I was bored. I'm going to be Mr. Mom for a few more days, which means no riding. Right now, I'm rebuilding all the old pedals from my spare parts boxes.

Looking at the picture without actually reading your post yet, I had this exact thought!
