My first fixed gear bike. Fast and smooth.

People who friended this bike thegrither,

Those bars

Those bars are fantastic! What about some Brooks tape to match the saddle? That would be relatively awesome (albeit quite expensive)

oooohh

tell me about those bars. Are those older and inaccessible, or are they readily available for purchase? I really like their shape.

They look like a randonneur

They look like a randonneur style h-bar. Nitto makes a very similar style.!

ALPS Industrial Company

Hey, I found these bars at a local bike co-op. I don't think they make them anymore... on the bars it says "ALPS INDUSTRIAL COMPANY LTD JAPAN" and "ROAD CHAMPION" on both sides near the clamp area... I tried looking them up but couldn't really find much about them. If I get new bars in the future, I'll sell them to you.

sounds about right

They are pretty sweet, and look great on your bike. Thanks man. And hooray for coop finds!

Thanks

I really want to use grips or bar tape but I really like the chrome finish of the bars, haha. so I might just get gloves.

ehhh

yeah, I feel ya. Try taping the bars up around the drops, and leave the top portion bare. Get that silver flair with some comfort.

I just got back riding with

I just got back riding with the bars raw... it doesn't really hurt my hands but it's slippery as hell lol.
