A New Pair of Horns

I've had my Specialized Sirrus for well over a year now. And on the very few longer-ish rides I've taken—I've definitely wished I could alter my hand position on what had previously been a pair of straight handle bars. So this week I determined to add a set of bar ends onto my bike. The debate was between an ergonomic, rubberized set vs. a chrome, mountain bike-style.

So based on some solid advice from a handful of co-workers and friends, I (obviously) chose to go with the chrome and I'm pretty stoked on the results. It works aesthetically and after a ride around the hood with the Kyality Kids, I was stoked to be able switch up my hand positioning. So now I've got a bulldog car and bull-horned bike... nice.

I just picked up an 09 Sirrus Sport and am in the market for some bar ends. Yours look great and I think I will have to do the same. Did you keep the tilt the same as you have in your pic after using for a while?

Great blog, I liked the history of family cars. Can't believe your dad had a Le Car!

Actually, I've been thinking of moving them up slightly to give me more of an upright position for climbing. Thanks for the note!

And we actually owned 2 Le Cars!
