Don´t be cheep! You done something stupid, you pay for it, not your brother!!!
Only way of making a mence is to buy yourself something better, like the 3T Morphe or Nitto moustache handlebars!;)
I have used Scott-bullhorn bars with integrated barends but got rid of them. This was due to the pain caused by resting once hands to far out onto the bend for to long. Probably got some nerves pinched and think the same problem could be caused with these "Butterfly-bars".
I also think that Butterfly bars are to wide and flexi. Can´t get my head around the idea of having an extra forward grip that are higher, when a low and more aerodynamic position is what I really think is needed for touring.
I have just made the conversion from straight bar/barends/thumbshifters, to dropped bars(3T Morphe, recommended!) and barcon-shifters and really like this new set-up. The Barcon-shifters have a friction mode that is useful when I swap with my older wheels and might save the day if I experience a blow to the rear derailleur. I use a Aheadset stem with a generous rise so that I don't have to look at the wheels but can enjoy the surrounding landscape.
The problem with straight bars/barends I used before is that there is no one available with a ergonomic 7-9 degree back sweep anymore. They are all 3-5 degrees. I asked Andy from SJS at Cycle 2003 about this and he suggested their new ergonomic handlebars that he designed in conjunction with his girlfriend that is a physiotherapist. Why they made them with a rise, like the currently so fashionable riserbars, and thereby wasted lost of valuable space that one need for computers, handlebarbags etc, he could not say...! He did how ever mention that he did not like barbags, so maybe they work for him!!!
If you really want a new handlebar I would suggest the Nitto Moustache handlebar previous mentioned. They seem to be the bee´s knee´s and I have tried to get a pair at a resonable cost for some time now.
Here is a very nice bike equipped with these bars:http://todd.cleverchimp.com/bike/paccoast/pages/loaded.htmlhttp://todd.cleverchimp.com/bike/notes.htmlhttp://todd.cleverchimp.com/bike/
