Seems like I've only seen bullhorns on SS and fixies. I've been experimenting with an old, chopped & flopped bar on a vintage, 12-speed nishiki I use for commute. Aside from the fact that they are a tad bit narrow for my tastes (40cm) especially if I want to put in line brake levers on the flats as opposed to bar end brake levers, I actually kind of like it :D .Was wondering if it looked out of place, though... anyone else ever do this?

Nice!! Makes me want to stick with my setup. I can't tell 100% from the photo, but those aren't TT reverse levers are they? Was it hard to route the cables under the bar tape?

EDIT: Sorry. After closer inspection, it looks like they are TT levers. Which ones?

... funny you should mention... cuz I just pulled this out of storage (it's been sitting since 2001... originally set up for time trials)...



It has an odd geometry and I don't know if it'll stay this way, but I've had it out on the roads to become reacquainted.

Go to the GDR (Great Divide Race) website. One of the guys (the winning guy, I think..) is using what looks to me like heavily padded bullhorns, with aerobars, on his cross country mountain bike, that he won the race with!
