    cheap bullhorns

    Just as I prepared a thread asking, "where can I get some cheapo bullhorns like chucksbikes.com used to have?" I go and check the site, and they've got 'em again. Three different types for around $12, which beats all that ebay nonsense....

    Hey, thanks for the link. I just ordered a pair of Syntace bars. Cheap.

    Looks like the Syntace might be a bit shorter / different curve. Might just be the angle of the photo, though. People have made references to the Tsunami El Toro (carried by chuck's in the past) and Syntace bulls being identical...

    Madison, eh?

    Those Syntace look like they have no-drop. I would love some 38cm bars but am not sure if I will like them.

    Hell for $12.50 though I may as well buy a pair and see.

    i guess syntace has three models for the drop measurement: 0mm, 20mm, and 40 mm...anyone know which one this is?

    looks like it's 0 mm in the pic, but that's just eyeballing....

    I just ordered the anatomics -- I've been wanting a pair of Ritchey Prologues for a while, but the cheapest I've ever seen was about $50. Can beat 'em for $14

    I have the 'el toro's' that Chuck's no longer stocks. Eyeballing them from a long distance, I would guess that they have a 20mm drop. Mine are also stamped "syntace" on the bottom. Those anatomic bars look pretty nice.

    Those are the 5 degree drop. Trisports says that the silver was only made in 5 degree. On the zero drops, the "tops" don't come straight horizontal from the stem. They bend back from the clamping area, then curve forward, like this:
