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)

Does anyone know where I can get sillver (chrome or anodized) risers with very little rise and little to no sweep with a 25.4 clamp size?

EDIT: Does anyone know the clamp size of the Icon risers on nycbikes.com?

I have a couple of sets. They come in silver. You cant buy them in the US right now i think.
About a 1.5" rise id guess. 22mm bar.
