    has anyone ever heard of or seen any real bullhorn handlebars? I guess i just personally think that would be badass beyond all measure. It seems like it wouldn't take too much work to somehow attach a piece of handlebar between two appropriately-sized bull horns. please tell me someone has done this? it would make me happy.

    I guess this is just an amusing thought, especially since i live in suburbia, and all we have is deer that get hit by cars.

    Bada$$, no that sounds like nonsense. I think that it would look dumb... But if you really want to do it, I would...:

    I would take a mtb flat or riser bar (possibly even a riser bar turned forwards), and then get some deer antlers or whatever the hell you have in VA, and then sand/ file the ends down so they fit in the bars. Make sure that a lot of the antler goes into the bar, and then epoxy it in... Maybe even put a machine screw through the end of the bar and into the antler...
    better hope that sucka don't come off when your hammering on the bars....

    I wouldn't do it, (1.) because it would look stupid, and (2.) I like my face and teeth the way they are.

    hmm, thinking about it, dead bones might just be really brittle, in which case, well... they'd break

    Horns aren't bone, they are similar to hair. And fingernails. Probably still brittle, but not bone. Bone might hold up better.

    Quit giving me ideas for my death bike. It's already getting a black Brooks with black rails... soon the only thing I will need is a black rimset with black spokes and hubs...

    [QUOTE=HereNT] "Horns aren't bone, they are similar to hair. And fingernails. Probably still brittle, but not bone. Bone might hold up better."

    Correct!

    And what are the differences between antlers and horns, kids?

    Horns are found on antelopes, giraffes, rhinos and members of the bovine species.
    Horns are are permanent.
    Horns are not branched, but can take on bizarre shapes: spiralling twists, angular kinks.
    Antelope horns are made of a bone core with a keratin covering.
    Keratin is a hornlike material that makes up human hair and fingernails too.
    Giraffes and okapis have unique horns comprising bony cores covered with furred skin
    Rhino horns are unattached to the skull and are made of solid keratin (no bone).
    Antlers are only found on deer specis.
    Antlers grow in spring, reach full size at mating season and fall off thereafter.
    Antlers may be branched. Only male deer (except caribou) have antlers.
    Antlers are made completely of bone without a keratin covering.

    That's awesome. Are we just looking at a lot of paper mache?

    Someone who works the same place I do had a bison bike last summer/winter. Fake fur wrapped and glued to the frame and a paper mache set of bull horns Dukes of Hazzard style on the front.

    has anyone tried gutting a buffalo or perhaps even a tauntaun, and then mounted the hollowed-out carcass on a bike so that when you ride you stay warm?

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    p.s. I think anyone who builds a bike with real bullhorns should use those points for good deeds, like spearing parking-meter guys or ruining the paint on big SUVs...

    No they are the handle bars made for the US olympic team in 1984.

    Hey, that's mine!

    The bars are indeed LA84's. You can find them around on ebay from time to time. The clamp diameter is 26.4, so you will either need the cinelli stem that is that size if you are running quill, or a front loading stem and be careful in clamping them down.

    Really nice bend and very comfy. I am pretty certain that Nitto makes a bar that is nearly identical in the bend and comes in the smaller clamp diameters.
