commuter bike changeup
after reading some posts and checking out some rides I am going to switch the set up on my commuter bike. Going to go from flat bar with bar ends to the bullhorn with brifters (shifters/brakes)....but damn those are pricey...
anyone know where to get a set for a decent price (preferably under 100)>>>
why would you want 'brifters' on bull horns...ie time trial bars without added armthingies....or are you looking at a different type of bar and have misnamed it...? I guess you could use'brifters' on a bullhorn...I think brifters are typically expen$ive...never used them on my bikes...I run barcons....

similar to this, but the bars will not come up high like that:
Brifters are about the only way to get braking and shifting on bullhorns. However as you noticed brifters are expensive.
You can try barcons and road brake levers for a less expensive but still high quality option. Or you can look for some Sora components.
bikepartsusa.com has some Sora shifters for a little under $100.
There are also some on Ebay that you maybe able to get for <$100.
Or my choice would be to lose the shifters and just go with TT brake levers. One speed is all you need.
