Take the bull by its horns?

Oh you’ve seen it before. Y’know, drop bars on old ten speeds turned up…way up. It’s colloquially (and derisively) known as “bum bars”. But have you ever seen them on a British three speed before? And not drop bars, but North Roads? The only way that this makes ANY sense is that this bike is way too small for its owner. Otherwise, a quite lovely Dunelt!

  1. Could it be the path racer thing – or simulated bull horns ? Not a very elegant attempt though – makes it look like the clamp bolt is loose !
    I remember kids at my school ( a long long time ago ) were turning these kind of bars upside down for some reason …
    Cheers !
