Narrow bars are a must in the city IMHO.... especially if you have to fit in between that H2 and a transit bus. I attempted to ride my SS while my fixie was broke, and trying to direct 27" bars in traffic was horrible. I run nitto moustache bars on my crosscheck, and ran 19.5" flatbars w/ bar-ends prior to that. I find the narrow bars very responsive, your steering will be much quicker.zoomgrrl said:anyone ever run time trial, or "bullhorn" type handlebars on their singlespeed mountain bike? i've got a monocog, but its used mainly for city riding/commuting/delivery work, formatted with skinny tires and all that stuff. thing is, i feel like my bars are too wide and cause an obstruction. i'm looking into either a short riser or flat bar or bullhorn bars. my questions are, which ones in these categories do you recommend, and if i do switch over, is maneuverability sacrificed?
