    Chuck's bullhorns are a thumbs up

    I don't work for or have anything to do with Chuck's bikes other than being a customer but I thought I would let everyone know that the bullhorns from Chuck's are pretty good. They are great for $10.

    I got mine shipped with white tape for less than $20. Hard to beat that price. Here are a couple of pics of my new bars and tape.

    They have a little more drop than I would like but overall, thumb's up.

    Could you post a side angle pic to illustrate the angle on the rise?

    F*** Thoreau (sry bikkhu). At the risk of sounding contrary to one of Emerson's strongest points - Self-Reliance is a piece of literature everyone should read. Thoreau was a small dog barking at the heels of the Boston Brahmins...and staying with relatives whilst 'enduring' Walden.
    *whew*
    I really do not care for Thoreau...can you tell?

    They made me read it in high school. Probably a good thing that I did (you can never read too much unless it's about stash pockets, right?) but I never felt the need to own a copy or read it again.

    Guess I just don't have enough hate.

    Wow - I did read that, I think. That was the guy that lived up there in a bus and didn't know that the berries he was eating were the thing that was keeping him from actually digesting anything else as he slowly starved to death, right? Damn good book.

    Reminds me of JFK Jr....Stupid rich kid crashes airplane.

    A good book like that would be "Shackleton's Boat Journey", "Endurance, Shackleton's Incredible Voyage", or "My life with the Eskimo-Vilhjalmur Stefansson

    actually - if my bars are bare - I can sometimes make cool whistling noises with these holes if I grip the bars just right.

    yeah, that's it. Also worth reading, "Into thin air". Stupid millionaire holiday climbers die on everest. Another thread gloriously off topic...

    Met some people on the trip and the author of the conflicting book The Climb, Gary DeWalt when I lived in Santa Fe. THat whole thing blew up into such a huge f-ing deal. I think your description of the event was sufficient. Didn't need two books on the subject or however many there are.

    -I love how you have Ayn Rand and Michael Moore on the same shelf, just a few books apart....-
    Yeah, well, I'm a reader with broad interests. I have the fountainhead on another shelf. Probably next to the communist manifesto :-) (no, I don't really own the communist manifesto, but I have read it.)

    -How does your brake work w/ that tight angle at the brake hood?-
    The brake lever is a little stiff, but it works fine. I haven't had any problems with it yet. It's a new cable and housing, so maybe it works pretty well even if it has tight angles?

    -yo dude you need to clean that slime off your house/garage -

    It's a rental house, so I will let the landlord take care of it if he has a problem. Does look a little gross but it kind of makes it homey. (?)
