Dec 13, 2010 @ 21:07
that's how it came on the bike..i like it though. adds some weight paired with the b43 so i don't blow around in the wind as much. plus, it just looks plain dope smokeyface

here's a recent pic how i've been riding it. still haven't received my rb-021s in the mail yet

I love your bike. It looks great. That is what you call a fixed gear bike or track bike, Al Azif
Dec 14, 2010 @ 21:38
^ lmao you're an idiot. my bike having a fixed gear makes it a fixed gear bicycle. never said it was intended for the track.

ya'll elitists are real funny

@alazif - you should cop some bar tape. i rode my bullhorns for months without tape and i think that's what caused a ganglion cyst in my wrist to develop. got em taped up and it went away.

anyways. my brother gave me a road bike [03' Giant OCR1] and it's pretty awesome!

What handlebars are best for just comuting around town? or is it a personal preference?
such as bullhorn bars, moustache bars, etc

Handle bars

It's all about personal preferences, but I would consider "drops" and "bullhorn bars" the most comfortable.

mostly personal preference but you have to consider other factors. the amount of hand positions that the bars have, how intense you're riding around town, etc

I think drops look best but straights give you the best hand position. Actually Bull horns give you multiple hand positions but kill the overall look of the bike.

I ride on the street daily and everyone I see with drops has their hands on top on the drop bars.
