Where can I get a custom bullhorn bar made?(3 posts)

Where can I get a custom bullhorn bar made?BAi9302010

A while ago, I asked if anyone knew where I could get a fork/bar combo made, like what Chris Boardman used, that would allow me to get very low in my aerobars and I was unable to find one. After thinking it over for a while though, I came up with an idea for a bullhorn bar (made out of regular aluminum tubing) that could be attached to a regular stem and clip-on aerobars, that would also allow me to get low. My question is, does anyone know where I can have a custom aluminum bullhorn bar made?

(I got the idea from another bar setup that Boardman used in a photo from the '94 TDF prologue)

syntace stratos 40degree drop (deepest). These also come in different drops, so chose what you want. Couple these bars with the aerobars of your choice, and you got a seriously looking tt setup.

I bought mine from www.trisports.com.

why not just buy a cheap 40 degree ahead stem and flip it upside down. use normal bullhorns and aerobars. how do you figure bullhorns will get you low? the high of teh horns is dependent on the angle of the stem. a -40 degree drop on the stem will get you super low. i used one with my MCR for a time, but it was tiring out my hip flexors too quick so back to a normal -17.
