i'm considering a little something for my single speed, but i've not seen it around much so i thought i'd "run it up the flagpole and see who salutes". yes, i'm too insecure to just do it myself. you can call me names if you want. *sigh*
so i've got some old campy brakes (non aero) that i'm running, but i think i want to get a set of handlebars and chop them (i rarely ride in the drops, and simplifying the handlebar is appealing as i like the whole simple bike thing). oh, and i'm not really liking the upside-down brake setup.
what i'm considering is cutting off the bar just below the drops. it will keep the levers where they are so i will still have the hoods to ride on, essentially acting like bullhorns except it will allow the cables to run in the traditional arc.
do you guys see any potential problems with this? seen it? done it?
please be nice.
