New Nitto Fixie Bars
Barrie Bloor points to these Nitto bars on the Brick Lane Bikes site. They say:
We saw these at InterBike in Las Vegas last month – and couldn’t help but bring them back with us. They’re a limited edition collaboration with EAI – who also make the nicest track sprockets we’ve ever seen. They’ve got a solid feel to them, a little extra weight and beautifully finished blunt ends.
I would love to see Nitto make a drop bar like this.
Bar plugs (except my beloved Velox) are a pain. Most people wrap bar tape from the end up to the stem these days, so there's no need for a plug to hold the tape in place. Ends like this would be a cleaner solution.
