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)

Yeah, I have risers right now, I love them and plan on keeping them, but for some of the longer rides I do I want a nice set of bullhorns...Maybe they are nashbars, but the site doesn't specify a brand name..

they are definitely nashbars...

Might be worth it to just get it from them cause you have a choice of widths?
I definitely understand wanting options... I have kept mine around as well...
If you have the right brake lever (or lack of) its really fast to switch out the bars on a whim.

can anyone tell me if they'll work with soma tt brake lever? I would like to get these. And uhh, i have a 25.4mm stem, so annoying that I'll have to pick up a new stem as well.

Don't order from Nashbar. There's tons of **** flying around the roadie forums regarding NB's credit card systems being compromised and customers getting crazy ass charges on their CCs.

FWIW- It was the company (Heartland) that processes the credit cards, not Nashbar that was compromised. The CC #'s of people whod shopped at many different online stores were affected, not just Nashbar customers.

My # was stolen, as was my dad's.

I had those bars, just sold them yesterday too only because I got them too wide but otherwise I liked them. Really strong even for a big guy climbing, they didn't feel flexy at all the design of them is really nice compared to other bullhorns .
