4-6+ hour rides on bullhorns
I want bullhorns on my fixie. I want to mimic the brakehood position without running 2 levers. I rarely ride in the drops, so I don't think I'd miss them too much. I have a pair of chop and flop bullhorns on my town fixie that I like a lot, but I don't go long distances on that bike. I'm hoping to get some longer rides in this summer and even do a century on the fixie, so I'm wondering how comfortable bullhorns are on long distances. To those of you who have gone long distances (4-6 hours with few breaks) on bullhorns how did you like it? Was it comfortable? Did you miss the drops? What kind of bullhorns do you run and how do you like them?
I made a similar post in the road cycling forum. I apologize for the double post, but this forum seems to have more experience with bullhorns and the road forum seems to have more experience with long rides. I'm just trying to get as much feedback as I can. Thanks in advance for the info.
