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)

Nitto Time Trial Handlebar (pics anyone?)

i've been looking for bikes with these specific handlebars on them.

http://images.jensonusa.com/large/hb...l__26___42.jpg

I can't seem to find pics of those specific ones anywhere.

Lots of Pics of the RB-021 and RB-019... but not just the regular Time Trials...

These look best to me because i tend to like to ride with my hand where the curve on that handlebar is, but would also be suitable for street, hill, and long distance rides... i'm sorry but the 21s and 19s, just look uncomfortable.

if you've got pics, please post.

Pretty sure Alex (Lilcphoto) ordered a set of those bars from me a while back. I don't think he still uses them but maybe he'll pop in and post some pics.

In other news: they're huge.

the flat part of the horns on them are abnormally long?

Pretty much, yeah. I had never even seen them before the ones for Alex came in and was blown away by how big they were (that's what she said).

They are designed like the old time trial bars, where you are layed out but arms spread. Sort of if you take the standard modern tt bars and spread them out. So theyre designed to be long, and wouldnt be especially comfy to ride the extentions if not layed out.

I do indeed have them. I can attest to how awkward they are because they dip down too far for my current setup. If I want to end up using them I'll have to get a 53cm-ish frame... The flats are nice, the horns are too, its just a matter of dialing it in correctly.



Lets just say they were short lived with that setup. I advice against them, unless you can test them out first.

I have them, I like them. Their reach is a little on the short side, but the drop is not as aggressive as the RB-021s.
