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)

generic or replica pursuit bars

i came across some pursuit bars over the summer that were very similar to nitto's 021's or 019's...wasn't able to see them side by side, but they were essentially the same thing. I've been thinking of switching over to bullhorns lately, but the price is delaying. These bars that i stumbled across were about half the cost of the nitto's, and i've been looking for them ever since. Does anyone know of any knock-off pursuit/bullhorns similar to the nitto's mentioned above? i've had no luck so far.

Well 021's run about $50, which is pretty cheap as far as handlebars go. The only other handlebars that copy the nitto design that I can think of are the soma el toros, which cost the same.

Just save a bit more and get the nittos (or somas if steel is your thing). Cheap knockoffs would only be about $20 less and that's not too much to save up for.
