Wow, you have a bash guard and a chain guard. Yea, your pant leg is not going to get sucked into the drive train ever...well, it's not like bananas ever wear pants but still, pretty neat.

PS: I guess this banana wears pants but I doubt he rides a bike..

My buddy had those on his Mash for 20 minutes and hated them. I'm patiently waiting to pounce on them.

I'll do that once I figure out why the inside pad (near wrist) of my hands hurts after 50kms with bullhorns. Must the downward angle?

Picked up this Cervelo Bullbar yesterday.

Can't seem to find anything on it online.

Anyone know anything about it?

Here's my setup. I actually jam an oversize cross lever on the clamp region right next to the stem. I cover the bar with a bit of electrical tape first, though.

Saw this on campus. Anyone ever see something like it? Looks like the brakes are in the original position that would be used for the drops, flipped the other way before they were cut.

Got to ride my SS for the first time last night.
I like it a lot. It's exactly what I thought it'd be.

The only thing I need to adjust will be the cockpit.
Will have to put on a longer stem and definitely a 44cm bar.
Right now, it has what seems to be a 90mm stem and a 40cm bar.
AND, I definitely know that I'm going to have to have bar end brake levers.
That and as suspected a new saddle.

Any suggestions for brake levers?

I am just realizing now after hunting for a good bar/brake combo, that the only way to really have a brake on the flats of a Bullhorn is to use a Cross type lever...right?

I could have sworn though that I've seen a bullhorn with a Paul E-Lever on it. Does anybody run any Paul Component brake lever (aside from their cross type) on anything but risers?

don't think there's any reason the E-lever wouldn't work.
