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)

Brakes For Bullhorn bars

I recently bought a new road bike and I am interested in converting my handlebars into bull horns but I am not sure how to go about converting the brakes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

you dont need to convert your brake, just move it to where you want it. the mechanics are still the same.
