    Decent bullhorn + tt levers

    I want to put bullhorn bars and a tt brake lever. I have mainly been looking at chucks, performance bike, and nashbar. I really wanted a chrome bar to match my chrome pista frame, but i have not be able to find any (besides fliping and chopping some drop bars).

    The bars ive been looking at are:

    Profile Design Airwing TT Handlebar
    http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=5255
    It says "Grooved cable guides for aerodynamics and comfort", but is that internal or external?

    Profile Design Stoker TT Bar 26.0
    http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...&category=1275
    internal routing.

    Nashbar Time Trial Handlebar
    http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...ku=8448&brand=
    It says "single cable groove", so external right?

    Nitto bullhorn
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Nitto-RB-018-Bul...QQcmdZViewItem
    Internal or external?


    For the levers, i have looked at a lot and they all seem pretty similar. I dont need anything real special, so im looking for the best value here.

    The whole point of this thread was to get some reccomendations from you guys. I dont know what levers and bars are compatible so hopefully i can get that figured out. Let me know which bars you would pick and what levers to match them with. Thanks!

    I'm a huge fan of my Syntace Stratos bars. They fit your arms and wrists perfectly. When I first tried them I didn't even feel like I was holding anything.

    internal routing.
    I just put a set of those on my Milwaukee this past weekend. I like them. Previously I had the Nitto ones with the drop, and found them uncomfortable. The internal cable routing is wierd... the holes are on the SIDES of the bars. I have a single Cane Creek TT200 brake lever, and the cable exits outside the bars, and on the underside. If I wanted to use the internal routing, I'd have to route it from the middle bottom of the bar over to the side, into the bar, then out the side again.

    I said fsck that, and just ran the cable along the bottom of the bar under the tape.

    Hmm i like the stokers too. I think i would just get a lever that i could just run the cable straight into without rout it back out.

    have used the Stratos bars before, but i recently switched out to some syntace, simply for the fact that they came back a little on the flat before going forward. the stratos are still good bars though.

    if you want silver this is what i have, but mine are black

    I like the Stoker 26 from Profile. I polished mine since I didn't want black.



    Good luck
