Cheap bars = dental appointment?

Postby bychosis » Mon Jul 15, 2013 10:50 pm

Looking for some bullhorns, cheap. Tried the flop and chop method which is OK. Then found these on eBay.

They are the right price. Thoughts on value for money? Would be used on a sometimes used budget fixie (it's got Reid wheels :shock: )

Cheap Bars = Hospital big time, I had a set of cheap bars break on me and I broke as i hit the bike trail.

Collar bone, 2 ribs, cracked shoulder blade, 2 cracks in the hip, Helmet damage, Head Damage and 3 months off the bike.

So cheap bars are definately not worth it, they are your sole control of the front wheel
