You never fail with the interesting bikes Goose.
bit of lube and mount it up and it cracks back to normal after about two revolutions.
I’ll never understand bull horns, espcially massive ones.
ride 50kms on open roads and dont move your hands around.
flat bars are found wanting very quickly when out of the city.
uh, isn’t that why we have drop bars?
Riding in the drops isn’t particularly comfortable though, it’s more of a sprinting position. Bullhorns effectively give you a brake hood hand position, which is good for longer distances.
riding in the drops is a sprinting or climbing position, yes. but drop bars - especially road drops - give you more potential hand positions than either bullhorns or risers, and would suit the aforementioned situation better than either option.
i might add that earlier this year me and some other guys rode 1100ks out on the open road, and amongst us sported all of the aforementioned types of bars. and we all did just fine.
