    ordered it!

    so i went to the LBS today and test rode a bianchi san jose....it's pretty much the bike i wanted minus the bullhorns...i like the wider/cross feel of the bike. They had a size down from what i needed so i went ahead and put in the order. I will post pics when it arrives!

    Will they swap the bullhorns for something you want?

    congrats ... it comes with a drops. you can always chop and flip (don't know the actualy name) temporarily until you get actual bullhorns...
    best of luck with the new whip.

    Are these any time trial levers that would work with cantilever brakes? Seems like they won't provide enough power.

    You could certain just run the regular levers backwards, but that's kinda ghetto looking.

    Nice choice!

    I will make the same one in a few months. Any idea what the widest tire that will fit in the rear is?

    It will be fine. The only bar end brake levers that don't work worth a damn are the Profile Stubby Bullet Thingeys. Some people will know what I am talking about.
