As I'm building a long-distance fixie (50-60km each way once in a blue moon) with two brakes I'm wondering if there's a rule how hide the bars should be. My Inbred has 720mm bars, my last fixie (several years ago in London) had 420mm flats. Somebody told me that it needs to be as many centimetres as the size of my dinner jacket. Any substance to this claim? BTW I'm fitting roadie bars, no bullhorns/flats/whatever else is cheap.
Any advice much appreciated.
