We've decided we're going to have a few more of these favorite things posts. I do a lot of city riding, so many of these items are influenced by that.
Postino bars were the first thing to come to mind for me. They're sporty with a 0 rise, and elegant with their subtle curves; a perfect city bar in my opinion. The angles are comfortable and the width is nice for wheelies. I've got mine on an old Peugeot, but they also pair well with the Pass Hunter.
cork grips? They're comfortable and look great. You can shellac them if you're worried about them getting dirty, but personally I prefer them bare. Of course, I also think white bar wrap looks good when it gets dirty. It's like an old t-shirt you've worn so many times that it's broken in and soft.
zero setback seatpost is a more recent favorite of mine. It's a simple and well designed seatpost. The single bolt clamp is easy to work with and the ovalized tubing gives it extra strength. Besides, the black gloss finish is so choice. I probably bring up colors more than I should. Just ask my coworkers.
Fairweather tires. These aren't your cheap-o colored rubber tires that you throw on your Walmart fixie. They're real road and touring tires made by Panaracer. The algae traveler tires are probably my favorite out of the bunch. They're kind of blue and kind of green. Depends on what light you have them in. When paired with the right frame, they make the color really pop.
