    light weight bullhorn bars

    i've had a quick look around and couldn't find much... i'm after either light alloy or preferably carbon bullhorn bars.
    the only issue is, i would prefer round carbon ones so i can mount brake levers near the stem, most seem to be the winged design?

    under 200 grams is ideal.

    my other train of thought, is i've seen people talk about flipping drop bars and cutting them...
    drop bars seem to have a more rounded profile (perhaps for the CX style shifters near the stem?) where something like this would work?

    Please tell me that this isn't for a mountain bike. At most, you'll be looking at like 480mm.

    Good point for sure they where narrow but I can not remember how much, no more than 550mm.
