Upgrading front end
My ride currently uses a nashbar threadless stem and bullhorns. Not so sure about the stem, but I can physically flex the bars by holding the horns and squeezing them together. Obviously, the front end feels really noodly when I ride. Anybody have any rec's on stiffer bullhorns that aren't stuidly expensive? I'm looking for something with nice flats, little drop, that would work with a tt lever.
dc pirate, 4evah.
i usually buy a new bra when i need to upgrade my front end. har har har.
no, i had those horns too. dump em and go with the nitto short horns- way stiffer.

Find a set of cr-mo drops from an old 12-speed and a pipe cutter and you're set... unless you're looking for something all classy-like (read: premade).
does anybody think that the stem could be contributing, or is the diameter too big...?
Threadless, so its a 31.8mm diameter, right? Either way, you should fine. It's the bars, if you can squeeze 'em together like that. I go with sawed-off drops. At first, the reach felt too short, so I got a longer step. Blam! Feels good now.
