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)

Nashbar mustache bars

I went to my daily task of checking out Nashbar.com and found to my surprise that they offer a mustache bar at $29.00. (Pre-Season Sale)

It's steel and it weights 660 grams (heavy), but I'm wondering if anyone has tried out these bars, I'm having a hard time convincing myself that the Nitto Mustache Bars are worth the price of $60.(when you factor in tax/shipping)

Also, I hear that Nitto is the only company that makes this type of bar in Alumium since they bought the patent on the technique that makes these curvy bars.

Does anyone know of any other manufacturer of mustache bars and how to get them?

Thanks

That Nashbar mustache bar looks more like a upside down Northroad bar than a Nitto.
