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)

Nashbar bullhorn owners - help me out

Could you give me a measurement of the extension of these bars? (distance from bend to tip of the horn)

I'm thinking about buying some, but from the pictures I've seen, they look kind of long. I would love to get my hands on some of these: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yangevacheng/4852807672/ , but they are sold out everywhere and more expensive than what I'd like to spend anyway.

Thanks in advance.

If I had seen this at home I would help you, but if they are too long you could always just cut them down to the length you want. Can't beat the price.

I got around 18~20cm.
You should get it, for the price, they are pretty much a steal.

The bars look longer in squeegeesunny's pic for some reason. They are just as long as my RB-021s.

it's an optical illusion due to the lack of brakes.
