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)

Moscow bars

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know where to get these bars in the US. Could only find them on UK sites.

Thanks!

Damn, that would have been sweet! Unfortunately they are out of stock.
Got any other sites?

They just felt different than i thought they would. It had to do with my own stem length and hieght issue. I was set up to use drops. and whenever i put on bullhorns, the flat part of my hands would be in the same position but everything else would be changed too much. It took me a couple tries with different bullhorns before i realized it wasn't the bars but my set-up. So i bought some nitto cromoly track drops ($37 at spicer cycles) and everything feels gravy.
