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)

Nope. OURY facing forward so the whole world can see them like thus:

1. I'm not into advertising for others for free.
2. I want a cockpit where I can read everything.
3. People looking in their review mirror will see YRUO
4. That would drive me nuts because it would be backwards to my eyes.
5. Your positioning makes the bike handle poorly. It's been proven that the recessed logos cause drag and instability once over 12 MPH. Very dangerous, in fact.

I don't think he cares about any of that. I think the shameless old pedal masher just wanted an excuse to post yet another photo of his blinged out Rush.

Needs a cleaning and the black cranks are an eyesore, but I'm really enjoying this bike.

#5 was my main concern when installing these grips.

Can you give the specs on this bike, frame, wheels etc, looks outstanding. Want to duplicate it, if you don't mind.
