I know this question is fraught with variables, but let me explain myself. I have two bikes, a heavy hybrid with fat tires that I modified to be a commuter (trekking bars, rack, panniers, etc.) and an (slightly above entry level) road bike. I have found myself using the road bike commuting to work a lot more recently because it is so much faster and more fun than my heavy, slow hybrid. Some of that is weight, some of it is the position, wheels, etc. of the hybrid.
I'm seriously considering getting a Redline 925 as my commuter. But I notice this years model has a more "relaxed" geometry and bullhorn bars. I know this is subjective, but I'm just wondering if it will feel more fast and zippy like my road bike or more like an upright clunker like my hybrid. I'll test ride one first, but I'd just like people's opinions who've ridden this year's model. I tried comparing the geometry charts, and it's hard to really say. I realize a big variable here is the single speed versus geared comparison, try to separate that issue if at all possible.
I know the bullhorn bars don't offer a "drop" position, but can you grab the ends and rest your forearms on the flat section and get lower? Thanks.
