carbon fiber bullhorns?

Does anyone manufacture carbon fiber bullhorns without the flat aero section? i'm looking for a round tube throughout the bar.

talk about overkill. the carbon components should stay on the track bikes. the street is not the track.

I ride on lots of cobblestones every day, and carbon bars are overkill. Invest in some good bar tape and a decent pair of gloves; your hands will be happy.

there's a big difference between a mile of cobblestones and two hours of road buzz.
i wouldn't be asking if i didn't have a reason.

I wouldn't be commenting if I only rode on a mile of cobblestones a day. If you want to piss your money away instead of looking for practical solutions have fun at it.

It's starting to look like flop & chops with the way these searches are going. The flat aero sections are aCtually really nice, except for the part about not being able to grab in the middle of the section. But the outer corners are much more comfortable than the round counterparts.

another point: i use a cross lever on the flat section. this is my main reason behind avoiding the aero section bars.

but yeah, i'm also coming up empty on searches.

Out of stock and 31.8 and expensive. Not quite round, but the closest I could find.

Chop and flop is probably going to be the cheapest/easily accessible.

Why do people care what he wants to spend his money on?



And I haven't seen round carbon bullhorns, only the ones for Tri bikes

I certainly don't. I was only trying to be helpful by offering up practical solutions to road buzz based on riding on seriously bad roads every day for the last eight years. It seems that the OP just wants to be a dick for some reason.

I like huerro's solution. Take another look at that monstrous homemade carbon frankenbike/deathtrap on VS for an example of what not to do.
