Hey 67Tony - what bars are those? I'm looking to possibly mod a Trek 520 for similar duties + commuting and want to do a front flat rack as well as rear grocery panniers. That bar looks versatile.

They were made by Guidons Philippe. I have bought several sets over the years because of their nice shape and finish.

Mrs non-fixie didn't want drop bars at the time but she did want to participate in C&V events, such as L'Eroica. I wanted her bike to have some street cred and look like a true sports bike (as opposed to a city bike without fenders) but also needed the short reach that would make her feel comfortable enough.

They have a slight rise to them, and on the first application I they rose up:



On the DeVos I flipped them for a slightly more aggressive stance:



The last build I used them on was her Mral, on which they ended up even lower, due to the geometry of the frame:

AG green. My original thought was green with brown and gold accessories, but then I saw Jagwire has Bianchi celeste cable sets, so I'm re-thinking things.

You guys are awesome!

I'm surprised how very upright many of these bikes are. Is that a thing for touring? I'm starting to think maybe north road style bars so I can maybe keep the ridiculous 120mm stem. And trigger shifters. Much to think about. Thank you, everyone, and keep 'em coming!

third is for fun, it is a mustache shape bar from an 1893 Petersen design.

My Fuji with those SL-770 shifters and the Ultegra 6700gs RD with a 11x36 10 speed cassette is my softest and quickest shifter.

The bike is a Pedersen (misspelled earlier). The full, really interesting story can be found via google search posted by an enthusiast/retailer. The abbreviated version is: Pedersen, an architect, in 1893 designed this bike for the people of Amsterdam. He also designed the first planetary gear drive. The design was to accommodate the sling saddle which would absorb the rough cobblestone roads. Fast forward a bunch, Jesper Solling, in the early 1900s, picked back up the design, built it and distributed it thru a European German distributer. The German distributor, in the mid 1970s, started building the bike and selling on their own which ended up putting Solling out of business. This particular bike I own is a mid 70s model from I am not sure where and add the wooden fenders and the beechwood rims hand made from a family in Italy to dress it up. It is a really comfortable ride but different because the seat is not fixed.
