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)

what bars are these? (another one of these threads)



they kind of look like townie bars but (maybe it's just the angle) they look like they have sharper bends.

Upside down major taylors??? No. Your powers of visualization are weak, young grasshopper.

They're generic cruiser risers. They look just like something you'd find on an old Raleigh Sports (Nitto, as already mentioned, replicated the idea with the north road bars). There are any number of knock offs (wald, velo orange, et al).

ain't as bad as the saddle being too high. Sure wish my LBS had those chalk stripe makers!
