It's handlebar madness

The latest trend in fixie culture? Cutting into your prized Nitto or Cinelli handlebars with an engraving tool or mini-grinder.

The results? I'm not sure I'm sold on it - but there's some pretty good designs. Leading the pack are clothing designer Jun Takahashi and an artist Kosuke Masuda who goes by the name Ko5.

And it's not just bars and stems - here's some Dura-Ace track cranks given the once over by Ko5.
