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)

25.4 bullhorns?

Know of any bullhorns with a 25.4 clamp area? I'm not terribly opposed to the idea of chopping some drops but would prefer to get something designed to be ridden that way.

^you are right on the bullhorns being 26.0. My drop at 25.4 so I got a bit confused. I have Syntace bars that are 26.0 and I ran them it a stem that was 25.4 for well over a year with no problems.
Although the is 6mm difference, you would think that is a lot, but if you look at the shims to use 25.4 on a 26.0, its not a huge difference.

I can't believe soma seems to be the only ones making them. Guess I probably will end up chopping somethin.
