    I am looking for bullhorn bars that are 37 to 39cm c-c with little to no drop, but I cannot find any. Doesn't anyone make them? It seems reasonable to think someone with all of the track bike and fixed-gear riders out there.

    I would chop some drops, but cannot seem to find any that would have a long/straight enough reach for my large hands.

    Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    some dude put his black gunnar street dog track bike on the "your fixie/ss photos" thread, page 94 i believe. he's got flipped and chopped nitto b-123's. i think they make em in 39cm and the way they're set up here looks smoooooth.

    Syntace Stratos Zero Drop. They make them in 39 cm c-c:

    Here's mine. I won't go back to drops.

    Thanks andylago and cheg. The Nittos look alright, but do not look comfortable. The Syntace look alright as well, but too much drop and not simple enough. I guess I am not looking hard enough or I am too picky. Nitto should make their no-drop bullhorns in smaller sizes; I am sure that has been said many-a-time. I think they would sell a lot of 'em.

    I'll just keep looking...

    Though it may not be obvious from the pictures on their site, one of the versions has no drop at all, they're flat. Those do bend back from the stem before hooking forward though.

    Good luck with your search.
