What a fantastic spring morning!
A little misty but surprisingly nice.
What I like about them is that they are like bull horns only with an additional hand position. This third position is just like a bar end and perfect for out of the saddle climbing. The only draw back is that when I am descending big hills I like to have a finger on the brakes and on these bars it means holding on the flat position but I would rather be in the second position, or low profiled holding the bar end position. Using a drop bar you can descend holding the bars in the curve, thus keeping a lower profile, while still keeping a finger or two on the brakes.

I wanted to try the 20 mile route home but I was short on time and had the laptop with me.
