    pursuit/bullhorns with rearward sweep?

    anyone know of any currently manufactured pursuit/bullhorn handlebars that have a slight rearward sweep like the old Syntace Stratos 800 series (the one on far right in the photo)??

    "Heat-treated aluminum" so a little pricey.

    The RB-002 doesn't have a rearward sweep, at least not as much as the Syntace, if any.
    They have a slight downward sweep and depending on the angle of the photo, makes it look like they sweep back.
    I have the RB-002 and like them alot.

    it does have a rearback sweep, as well as a downward drop. Both are slight, though.

    the shape of the RB-002's are nice, but they don't accept bar end levers or shifters, which i plan to use.

    any other ideas out there?

    anyone own the fyxation pursuit bars? do they have a rearward sweep?

    Mine don't. Straight from clamp area to bend. But with two shift and two brake cables and cross levers plus thick Lizard Skins there's really no telling what they do.

    A photograph can make a set of bullhorns do almost anything if it's taken at a certain angle.

    Yep. Put a straightedge behind the bends and you'll see a few eighths of an inch gap, underneath it's about an inch of drop.

    All of the Syntace Stratos bars have a rearward sweep, it's just a bit more pronounced on the Zero's (the far right one; the far left is the 800, then 400, then 200, then zeros). IMO these are some of the best bullhorns out there if you can find them. I found a store online about a year ago that had the 200's (20mm drop) and bought one, but I can't seem to find the site.

    i also had the 200's. the shape was pretty damn perfect.
    bought 'em from Chuck's Bikes a few years back, but sadly, that site doesn't exist anymore...
