    Bullhorn Bar/Brake Set-Ups


    Lookin' for cockpit ideas for my SS.

    Can I see some pics of your bullhorn bar & brake set-ups?

    (Yes, I've already looked through the pic threads and Google Images).

    Thanks.

    here is mine w/ dia compe shot lever.
    i like the lever cuz you can pull it from both sides.
    also, because one lever is longer than the other, it seems like you get more finger leverage with one, so shorter left side i use for taking speed off and longer right side for more sudden stops.
    also x2, i think they look nice on bullhorns cuz they look like mini bullhorns ;p

    Nice!

    Clean!

    I was trying to concoct some way to keep my Sora hoods
    and use them at the end of my a set of bull horns.

    The stock bullhorns on my SS look too long
    (it won't be here until mid-next week).

    I want to go shorter, more compact.

    Thanks.

    Keep 'em coming!

    nice looking bike illdthedj!! is that a miche seat post? since you mounted the levers on the leftside of the stem, wouldnt the long side lever just acts as a short lever because your fingers would have to reach over the stem?

    I used to have some Syntace Stratos that I really liked. I ended up chopping them for a bar end shiftered build but became less practical for anything else. I've got some Nitto bars now that are nice but don't look as good. No sweep back, no drop. Normally I like right angles and simple radii but they just look wrong.

    I need to find a shorter recessed nut for my brake so I can actually stop my bike.

    Sorry for the crappy Iphone pics, but this is my current commuter set up, and I am really happy with it. Syntace bars (0 drop) with Paul cross levers. Still gotta track down some cables that fit into the holes as the cross levers are not made for this type of thing.

    Acutally, TT single-speed. I did a individual TT on it a month or so back. Averaged 24.6mph over 10 miles with no aero gear. Wish I could train more and be faster. Some guys, albeit with full aero TT bikes/wheels/helmets, average 28mph. Carzy.

    I have this, too. For <$20 shipped (with a coupon, which Nashbar always seems to have), you really cannot complain.

    I have the same setup as bhop, though I'm about to switch my tape to grips. No pics at the moment.

    I like the Profile Design Airwing OS Bars, with Profile design levers, not the best photo but it's what I've got:

    I actually keep my one cross lever on the right rather than the left.
