Wabi Bullhorn Handlebar
A popular shape, especially for fixed gears/single speeds that gives you two different hand positions.
|RIDER HEIGHT||FRAME SIZE||STANDOVER HEIGHT|
|5'4 - 5'7||49CM||30.2IN|
|5'7 - 5'10||52CM||31.3IN|

|6'1 - 6'3||58CM||33.6IN|
|6'3 - 6'6||60CM||34.8IN|
Combine with the top mount (shown) or bar end mount brake levers for an elegant cockpit option. The reach on the bullhorn is similar to the standard drop bar, so stem extension should be the same for either type.

I've ridden a single speed with 42cm pursuit bars for ages and they were a huge benefit on the hills of San Francisco. Now that I ride a lot of flatter urban terrain I was looking for a narrower, shorter, bar for tighter maneuvering (and to keep a nice slim overall bike profile) but retain the bullhorn shape. 38cm in black is exactly what I was looking for and Wabi came through with the goods. They feel and look great, couldn't be happier.
Just what I was looking for,excellent quality,reasonably priced,fast service. Thank you
I dislike drops. When I ordered my Wabi lightening SE in aquamarine, I immediately changed the handlebars, selecting bullhorns, as well as, bar end levers for the brakes. After the bike arrived, I found that my stem was too long, making it hard to reach and enjoy the body position. The stretched body position also made it harder to reach the brake levers. After reconfiguring these bars to use top levers, and getting a shorter stem, I started to really enjoy this handlebar type, but I still didn't have the exact look and feel that I was envisioning. Finally, I purchased ($16) a pipe cutter tool on Amazon and trimmed the bullhorn handlebars by about 4 inches on each side. Rewrapped the bars and fell in love with an inanimate object. Shorty horns are amazing! Lots of possible hand positions for both flatland and hill climbing, while also keeping my body weight centered. I will forever cut down bullhorns for this frame. The shorty horns are even great in traffic, I worry less about catching a bar end in the side of a car or truck while splitting lanes. Although these bars are aluminum, I haven't gotten the same vibration transmission into my hands that I've experienced with all aluminum frames and handlebars. I assume the 725 Reynolds steel frame plays a role.
