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)

Who makes this handlebar?

K. So I bought this a while back.
Now its just sitting around getting dusty.

Fizik tape, Thompson stem, but I cant figure out who makes this handlebar.

Also I thought there was a plug at the end of the bar. Like a spike plug but I think it may be a part of it. Either that or its Really shoved in there.

Regardless. Who makes this. and what the hell is the point of the end bar like that?

Thanks

Probably some bar ends for motorcycles. Google comes up with a whole bunch.

But I like Metallico stuff better. Bar is welded shut and smoothed clean. Too bad about pricing tho.

I don't think they are bar ends... I think they're integrated into the bar. Notice the tape is cut at the end, instead of being tucked under the bar end.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/snackeypix/1778263897/

I think that's it. So it is art of the bar. This thing Is wicked mean without the bar tape.

Wow. Didn't realize I had a discontinued model. Pretty cool.

Does that mean it's made of silver (for the werewolves)?

And OP, those handlebars are for real men. It would go well with this bike seat.

Doesn't need to but you do want to slay in style am I right?

Heck a wooden stake would do the trick as long as it's to the heart of the monster.

We can call these handle bars stake bars just like how we call nitto's flats dild0 bars.

Ahh. Good idea for a ride. I'm contemplating selling them. I don't use them....
Won't be able to make the ride. I'll be doing the mesquite ride that day. Doing the 100k ride. Prob going to be exhausted. Never done a fixed 100k ride before.
But it sounds like fun.
