Shifters on bar ends?
Has anyone ever taken typical MTB style trigger shifters/brake levers and put them on a bull horn bar, or used a setup similar to the Bike Friday bar? I'm curious, because I, like most people who have drop bars, really don't spend much time in the drops. I use the hoods, which are sort of like being out on bar ends/using a bull horn style bar. Having my hands with the palms facing the stem is more comfortable than with my palms facing the road. The trouble with the hoods is that I can't really get a full grip on them and still brake effectively. Perhaps my technique with the drop bars is poor. Perhaps I'm not explaining myself properly, but it seems like it would be pretty comfortable. This thought is spurred by my recent fetish for disc brakes, and most disk brakes are found on straight bar commuters like the Trek Soho and the Scott SUB 10, and straight bars kill my wrists....
