Before 'n after. This was a fun project. And it really does ride great; nuttin' wrong with hi-ten.
I've only used it for short distances, but the hoods were fine. Definitely most useable than the hoods on a moustache bar, I think. The bar isn't as flat as it seems in the photos.Dave Hickey said:Can you use the hoods with any degree of comfort on a midge bar? I was thinking about them on a project

I don't know if you remember the black/orange Fort Ro Uno I posted last year, but I used the midge bars on that build and really liked them. I had a lot of hills on my commuter route and was very comfortable on the hoods during climbs.
Here is the thread with pics if you want to look at it. 42/16 which was quite a workout on some of the steep hills in and out of the Mississippi River Valley where I live. I wish I could convince FORT to make some more Cro Moly frames. This was the last of their single speeds I got on clearance made with Japanese Sanko tubing.JP said:Nice. How did you gear it? You know living at the top of a hill and all.
