If 380's were in stock that was certainly my first priority. I've only looked at bullhorns due to apparent out of stock situation of 380's

P.S. your 2nd photo "everesting example" that's the thing I have in mind. I'm aware with a bullhorn with less droop, the brake hoods will be sticking up higher and I'm just fine with that. I've already setup my hoods like that in my regular dropbar and didn't have any issue. I can still brake at the limit at the hoods. Don't mind the huge reach potential of bullhorn too as I have huge fore and aft adjustability with my saddle. Although pointless now as I have decided to just keep using my 420mm dropbar until the 380mm dropbar becomes available.
