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)

Bullhorns available in the UK?

Looking for some good bullhorn bars that are available in the UK. Been looking for a while now but can't find anything that actually looks good at a reasonable price. eBays pretty much empty and so are most of my usual bike stores.

Any suggestions?

Sorry. Should of probably put more info. Like chrome classic style bars with a drop on the bars rather than the cool looking tt style. Bikes more of a classic than a tt racer. Will have a look but from what I remember those sites pretty much stocked tt style bars or them crappy looking charge ones which I've heard suck.

hubjub and tokyofixed stock Nitto bullhorns wich in my eyes are as classy as bullhorns get. I couldn't picture what you wanted, maybe post an example of what you are after...

By chance are you talking about a pair of pursuit bars? I know I saw some Nitto RB021 at Tokyo Fixed which may be what your looking for.
