    New Fixie

    I just bought my first fixed gear, a used Fugi track bike. I like it because it was cheap and has a road-type geo rather than track. Anyway, I've notice many people here using longhorn handlebars. Is there an advantage to those over a typical road bar?

    Thanks

    If you spend most of your time on your hoods then bullhorns are for you. If you have brakes you will have more leverage on the lever as well.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
