Strong, stiff and light, the Rodeo Pursuit Bullhorn bar with 31.8 clamp provides a wide range of hand positions and a subtle 40mm drop for a comfortable and quick forward position. Whether riding the center for relaxed spinning or forward for sprints, the 31.8 Rodeo Pursuit Bullhorn bar is the ideal city bar.
The 31.8mm clamp Rodeo Pursuit bar is offers a stiff and responsive design built as much for city riding as it for sprints and time trials. This double butted 6061 aluminum handlebar is designed for today's oversized stems and balances strength and stiffness with a fast and comfortable forward position.
They were a good commuter replacement for my stock BMX bars, but the brake levers from old handlebars didn't fit on these - the rodeo handlebars were a bit thicker where they would be. Don't know if its difference in manufacturer, however just adds on an upgrade to my upgrade.
Excellent. Fortunately I'm a single speed rider needing no bar clamp accessories because there's no room. Perfect for me.
These are both lightweight (at least compared to my previous stock bars) and extremely sturdy. The 40mm drop is very nice as well, its not too low, but has that added lean. The only downside is the small about of flat space along the top, which i imagine is required for the structure, for putting a light or brakes. I was able to get it to fit, but its definitely all a bit tight.
Got these bars after riding on 42mm track drops for 5 years. I needed something that would allow me to see over my bag but still allow some sort of drop out of the wind. these were a great compromise between the obvious riser choice by so many fixed gear riders and the overly aggressive choice of track drops. The only downside is the steering response. i found them a bit sluggish, great for normal commuting, but when i was running late to work, made me wish for a little more snappyness in the steering. Great for when you are carrying heavy groceries or on that fuzzy ride home from the bar but dont put these on a bike that you demand more than commuter performance from.
My SSCX came with drop bars but since I was commuting (14 miles, round trip) instead of racing, I felt the drop portion of the bars were a waste. I had a chance to ride a Pixel with bullhorns and loved the position so I upgraded my bars to these Rodeo Pursuits. So far, I've racked up over a 100 miles (I'd log more if it wasn't raining everyday here in Kansas City, #Whining) and unlike the dropbars, I've had zero issues with my hands going numb, being so tucked down that I couldn't breath, or being so upright, I was a sail in the wind. I find myself normally riding on the horns during my commute but I do use the center "flats" for just soft-pedaling about or when digging into my backpack while on the move. I have yet to find a position I don't find comfy, but forward and on the horns works best for me. I'm currently 205lbs and 6 feet tall with a 32.5" inseam if that info helps anyone. I've read a bunch of review about bullhorns and questionable stiffness on a lot of boards on these internets. I have yet to flex these bars and I've torqued the **** outta them a number of times on super steep and slow climbs. In fact, I'm kinda surprised I haven't bent them or broken my stem because of how hard I've been yanking on them while on the trails, so thumbs up for that! The only con I can think of is that for my "Clydesdale" size, I could use a wider bar. But just slightly. I have the 42cm but with my 48" chest, I feel a 44cm or 46cm would be PERFECT. I'd buy again!
