I've started collecting parts for my next bike & was thinking I'd get some Nitto Bullhorns. But which ones? There seem to be a variety available. I've attached photos of 4 models what I've found so far on this forum & around the internet. Are these all? Opinions? I'm leaning toward to HB4004 or 018.
I have the 018s. They're pretty solid.

i'd go with the 4004s.. a friend has the 018's on his bike and they felt too short to me.
i think i have the 0-19's. you can torque those rascals and climb every mountain. get 'em. word. dap.

I have the first ones shown. I bought them to replace my chopped road bars I had before which were just too short. I knocked an inch off the end of the Nitto bars as they are pha-lentee-long. I like them for the flat spot near the stem for upright riding and getting down on the ends for speed/climbing. I'm very happy with them.

I have the 021 shown above and I really like them. I used to have the first ones shown(what ever model that is) I liked those too because of the gentle curves around the corners. For me I like to have some drop in the bull horns.

I have a pair of the 021s lying around doing nothing. If you're in nyc I can get em to you in the next few days for cheap.

If you decide on the 018, save your money and just flop and chop some old drops.
Hey, that's my bike with the 019's! :D I had pursuit bars (rb009) for a month or so, but wrecked them. I prefer the 19's, personally, because I could get them in a narrower size than the RB009's which only came in 42cm. The 19's gave me more hand positions than the 009's. The 21's look nice, too. I may have to give those guys a try.
I'm on crank, that offer still open?

As soon as I find 021's available in 38cm ... in North America ... I'm buying them.

How short are the 018's? I like stumpy bullhorns. Right now I'm riding cheap Nashbar bullhorns that I chopped the ends off of. I'm wondering how the Nittos compare. (I want less flex)

i have these lying around if anyone wants them really cheap.
I have the 018s on my bike. I am happy with them. They certainly don't flex.

I've got the 4004. I like the extension at the ends, so I can strech out on longer distances.
where can one pick up the 4004's?

I've got some nw 4004's, but I was bored one night and put red, yellow, and black bar tape on 'em. Just for s***s and giggles. Have not been put on a bike yet.

I have the first bullhorn pictured. I like them because the top is flat and and the drop is pretty deep and the length is crazy.
andrew where did you pick them up?
