I'd like to replace the straight bars on my D9 with bullhorn bars, but it'll take a bit of design.

Ideally I'd have two hand positions, one on the horns for speed, the other on the flats for cardoor-braking. That would mean two brake levers - reverse tri levers on the end of the horns, and cyclocross inline levers on the flats. I'm not sure if the SRAM gearshifter can be slid around the bar bends.

Also not sure how wide / long the bullhorn bars can be so as not to interfere with the front wheel during the fold.

Finally, the cross levers would have to be far enough apart that the brake/shift levers can hug the stem without too-tight bends.

Tricky business, modding folders!
