    Do any of you run or have run TT brake levers at the bottom of a drop bar?

    Lol, when I get my new bars next week I'm doing this, but am also connecting them to cross top levers.

    gonna look weirder than everything. I'll let you know how it goes, pics if I can.

    Well, I normally run brakeless, because it is used on the track other than to and from the track, but I'm headed up to the mountains for a month, and my legs havent been used in 3, so I'm gonna need brakes.

    I normally ride in the drops, but would also like a brake up top. So im going to run inverse levers on each side, ran through cross levers on the top, both front and rear.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    My very first bullhorn bar, about four years ago when I was a noob, was set up with levers that faced forward like that. It wasn't very good and it felt strange to have more of the weaker part of my hands on the brake levers instead of gripping the bar. Hoods + cross lever would better, plus more hand positions

    How do you set up TT levers that face forward on a bullhorn bar?

    I set up my Big Block with a cross lever that I can squeeze while in the drops of my Eighthinch faux track bars.

    Not the best angle to show you, but here it is:

    I really like the setup.
