Hi there here is my single/fixie build from reclaimed parts. Tried to keep original paint job by touching up scratches. New wheels chain and tyres. And to be legal front brake fitted.

A few years ago I used this bike for my daily 40 km commute. The frameset is currently in the attic and I should put the bike back together again...

Dipping my toe into the World of single speed, I have this little beauty which I am going to change to a singlespeed. I have a 46t Surly stainless chain ring and a 16t freewheel. Brakes are Ultegra.

Just cant decide if I should keep the drop bars or go for straight bars ? Opinions ??

What can be done about the d/t shifter lugs, I don't want to cut them off just wanted a way to make them look better and safer.

I'd take a guess at Mavic Pursuit bars, although the Nitto rb021 are a similar shape!

My fixed gear bike built from an old frameset I picked up. Budget-ish build. Straight bars are Specialized MTB bars, Suntour XCD canti front brake lever.
Thinking of putting some drops or bullhorn bars on though...

What can be done about the downtube shifters braze ons, I don't want to cut them off in case I change my mind, just wondered if there is something to cover them, :)
