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)

inexpensive polished alloy bullhorns?

Does anyone know a source for inexpensive, polished alloy (ie. silver) bullhorns?

I was thinking about chopping & flipping the road bars that came on the roadie conversion I'm building up. But, I don't think they'd work out very well due to their very shallow drop.

By that token... I guess I could perform the surgery on an inexpensive set of road drop bars, too. So, if you know of any that would work well, let's hear it.

Thanks.

Steve

Origin8 make an inexpensive silver alloy bullhorn with zero rise. Look for them on eBay.

Soma El Toros. The annoying Soma logo came off with a little citrasolve and my fingernail behind a rag.
