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)

At a glance, they have somewhere near 10+ pursuit bars.

It's the United States of America, Mr. Bean.

I'm going to wager that the cost to ship anything for a consumer, internationally, is going to eat up that 30e difference rather quickly.

This is how I got my RB021s... It wasn't easy. I had to use my disc wheel as a shield with only a pedal wrench as a weapon.

When I was in Europe I went to every bike shop I could and didn't have a problem finding a decent selection of bullhorn, base, or tri bars. Might just be a UK thing, but ask the guys at your LBS. Srsly.

On a side note, since it's related to bullhorns, do people generally change to a shorter stem? I'm currently running drops and am considering getting bullhorns.

I run a shorter stem with bullhorns than with my risers.
