Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i tried searching. 25.4 bullhorns?

i bought a new stem and my profile bullhorns don't fit so i am looking for 25.4 bullhorns and i can't find any at all. i'm looking for 40-42cm wide and 0 rise. i was thinking the Nitto B601 bar could be promising but i can't find any smaller than 45cm wide..any suggestions?

i looked at the website and all nitto bullhorns come in 26.0 cm. the B601 aren't really bullhorns but the shape is ok and i could cut them down. i'm pretty sure i'm out of luck.

My Nitto bullhorns have a shim on them. I think they are 26, possibly you could buy those and cut off the shim.

I think it's more of a sleeve than a shim. I think you'd have a tough time getting it off with-out ruining the bars in the process.

this came up before. the answer, flop & chop

ehh i don't want to flip and chop though. i don't think road bars provide enough length when chopped. i guess i'll just have to rely on my risers from now on.

Aren't stems cheaper than bars? Why don't you just buy the right stem?

yeah that's what i'm looking at now. i just bought the ITM 800 stem which is an open face quill stem so i can easily switch bars (brakeless) without any hassle. i thought i ordered the 26.0 stem but they sent me the 25.4 so i might just order the 26.0 this time (for sure). thanks to those who offered solutions.
