@alazif - you should cop some bar tape. i rode my bullhorns for months without tape and i think that's what caused a ganglion cyst in my wrist to develop. got em taped up and it went away.

anyways. my brother gave me a road bike [03' Giant OCR1] and it's pretty awesome!

What handlebars are best for just comuting around town? or is it a personal preference?
such as bullhorn bars, moustache bars, etc

It's all about personal preferences, but I would consider "drops" and "bullhorn bars" the most comfortable.

mostly personal preference but you have to consider other factors. the amount of hand positions that the bars have, how intense you're riding around town, etc

I think drops look best but straights give you the best hand position. Actually Bull horns give you multiple hand positions but kill the overall look of the bike.

I ride on the street daily and everyone I see with drops has their hands on top on the drop bars.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

I ride a fixed Mercier Kilo TT. The only thing about the whole world of fixed gears is that now it really seems to be showing a fork in the road. There are those that are riding to commute and try something new and others that are less for commute and cruising and more for the mechanics of the bicycle (tricks, etc.) I think that it's just all taken off and I'm all for it. Commuting in a city like NYC, no walk in the park though.
