Bull Horns or Base Bar Search
I acquired a Bianchi Pista used last year and been using it on and off for my commute. It came standard with drop bars which I eventually replaced with Origin 8 Bull Horns. Fixated on wanting this position, I just took whatever they had on stock.
After riding this for a while, it just seems to be really wide and too long. They are 42" wide, and my one shop was saying that was appropriate for my shoulder size. I am always worried about getting caught on something during the ride.
I thought about maybe cutting the bend out and shortening the length of the handles for now. I also was looking at Ben's Cycles online and found a whole list of Nitto handlebars that seem to be more what I imagined in my head.
I think I want something narrow, but not sure how the ride quality will be at 38" and 36" for me. I also see that it is noted that end brake aero levers will not fit on some of these bars.
Any other suggestions? I was thinking maybe a flat base bar, but not sure how much I will like that as well.
