    The Challange... 31.8 Bullhorns! In Silver!

    Of course, time and time again there is a post started about finding 31.8 bullhorns.

    This time, I have a challenge... I am looking for preferably a small drop SILVER 31.8 Bullhorn... The only silver 31.8 bullhorn I have found so far has been:
    Bicycle Bullhorn Handlebar Ano Slvr Flat 31.8mm 370-010


    If all else, perhaps I would just get the syntace stratos and change them to my liking, but it would definitely be nice to find a silver set to begin with


    Nitto TT bars


    Or, I might just have to look into getting a shim for the Nitto's

    If you can't find the right set of bullhorns at 31.8, there's nothing wrong with using a shim. That's what I've been doing.

    Can you take a photo... I feel like the stem being such a large opening and the Nitto bars being so thin (no taper) it might look quite odd to see such a step down.

    Don't have any close-ups and I'm not at home right now. This is the closest I could find



    There's a bit of a step down, but I don't really mind it. Eye of the beholder type of thing, I guess.

    Pretty sure Nate lives in Brooklyn. Those locks aren't overkill.

    I've only had 2 bikes stolen in my lifetime. One was ripped off when I was a student at Columbia University in Manhattan, NYC. The other was taken right out of my grad student dorm room at MIT in Cambridge, Ma. I keep all my bikes inside my house now, mostly the garage, which is locked at night. When I go to a store or whatever, all I need is a cable and padlock here. Kids around here don't rip off bikes. They're all obese and their obese parents take them everywhere in their suvs. They spend all their free time playing online video games.

    Love this bike. Wish I had some bullhorns like these on my GT, the proportions are really quite similar all around.

    I know they arent black, But 10-20 dollars at the local blast shop will easily blast this to a nice raw, And from there you can prep it yourself.

    That said, I only lock it up like this when I'm someplace where it's out of sight for an extended period of time. For short pitstops, a single u-lock has been enough so far.

    When I'm at home, it's in my bedroom. I never lock it out overnight.

    Thanks blicks!

    I've tried a variety of bars and always come back to the RB-021. Gives me all of it.

    So... aside from crime, punishment, and one guy (Thank you NateRod for your suggestion), has anybody found a silver 31.8 Bullhorn that has a slight drop?
