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)

Soma Walker Racers

Does anyone actually use these? They look kinda cool, in the old clubman, grass track, path racer sort of way. However, Soma's website is extraordinarily lacking in set-up advice, except to say that those bars won't take an aero brake lever. Surely someone here must have them.

*sigh* fine, I guess I'll just have to look them up myself, since no pic has been provided. Thanks, OP.

Edit: having looked them up, they look like they'd do fine with a cross lever on the flat section on the bottom. Not really much you can do with brakes, unless you figure out something really creative, and frankly I'm not up to the challenge.

Err, a non aero brake lever would probably be fine.
