    if some new-jack snapped a picture of me, just to post it on a forum to make fun of me, I'd be pissed.Except our own thoughts, there is nothing absolutely in our power.

    be kinda weird to go "gosh is this bike a member of the forum?" as, y'know, it's a bike.

    not like i took this picture specifically for this thread. i took the picture saturday, before the thread had been bumped and i knew it existed. sorry to get you in a huff, but... it was a ridic setup.

    how can you even reach those bar end shifters??

    which reminds me! i saw a dude on a sweet fixie with track drops who had a bar end shifter actuated front brake. i went to take a picture of his bike but then he walked out of the store lolz

    also in my google image search to see if i could find a similar pcture i found this

    When I first got my track bike (a long time ago) someone at Belmont Wheelworks suggested putting a Nexus hub on the front and using a bar end shifter to modulate speed.

    I've never entirely understood what they meant... it was a really long time ago (~15 years) but I seem to remember asking what they meant and they said there was a 3-speed internally geared front hub. I don't know how that makes any sense.

    Now that I think about it I wonder if they were pulling my leg. It wasn't one of the old guys, it was a younger guy.

    My father has a drill press so we just drilled the fork. I wish I had known about bolt-on keirin brakes at the time.

    ETA: I wonder if they were talking about operating a roller brake using a bar-end shifter?

    that's what I thought it might be, but after checking out the rear hub/setup it was (or appeared to be, at least) just a normal setup, and then I saw the front brakeMust be awful, being so fluffy.

    John Allis used to run a retrofriction bar end shifter as his brake lever on his "Sweet Fixie"
