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)

Post your Soma Noah's Arc or similiar curved flat bars

Wondering about Soma Noahs Arc bars or similar style curved flat bars. Do you run them with a stem with some rise? Something shorter or longer? Not sure how to set up.

The purpose of curved or heavily swept bars is to achieve a more natural hand position. So, set them up with comfort in mind to what feels best to you.
