My legs are my gears – not only a slogan on these fancy T-shirts from 8bar, but the name speaks for itself.
It’s no option for the guys around 8bar founder Stefan Schott to ride with gears or even brakes. Their bikes are minimalist and lean, one could say it’s crazy or dangerous what these guys are doing, but the fixed-gear racing scene has surely stepped out of the shadow of the classic road racing scene. The 8bar riders are participating in races all over the globe, whether it’s New York, London, Milano or Bangkok, they are speeding around sharp corners, skidding over the asphalt providing a massive spectacle to numerous spectators. As a matter of fact they need to trust a 100% into the material they are riding, to support their riding right on the limit.
