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)

In all seriousness, love the bike, and you're a great Dad.

New bike, need new bars. Flop and chop or stock bullhorns?

(brakes have been reconfigured)

Those rear brake cable brackets look like a hole in the pants waiting to happen when standing over the frame at a stop light. I would rotate them so that the binding screw is facing down under the frame tube.

Pants? stop light? Psssh, pleb talk.

Thing is, if the screws move under the TT, the cable will run over it. That will probably look terrible.

My thighs have not made contact with the screws yet, but thanks for the heads up. This choice between pants and bicycle aesthetics is one that requires much pondering.

It looks more odd to have the clips sideways.

Here is my newly acquired 2010 Bianchi San Jose. It's a 61 cm geared 42:17. I am in the process of changing the cockpit because the stem is too big and I don't like the bars. Going to put some GaryII Propulsion bars on it and white bar tape.

Ditch the clamps and tape and drill the holes yourself.
Don't do that
