For a while, I have been wondering what the fixed gear would ride like with the On-One Midge bar.
Quite a difference. More comfy and more usable area for differnet positions. I think the only problem is the shortness of the drop – my hand wants to use more area than the bar offers. While I was at it, I put on some older first-year Shimano 105 Dual Pivot calipers on:
Those brakes are many times more powerful than the side pulls that were on it before. Almost to much power – easy to lock the rear wheel up – kind of a useless thing on a fixed gear. The front brake is just as powerful and improves the off-road ability of the bike.
