Mine doesn't have them. The bars just go straight out sideways and stop
with bar end shifters. My hands rest on them palm down, with my little
fingers on the ends of the brake levers - so, normal position. Brakes
on "cow horn" extensions seem to end up oriented the same way, topologically
speaking, but you grasp them the opposite way so they're sort of backwards.
I believe the straight out bars were typical on old Ryans, and since the
Longbikes Vanguard have cow horns in the pictures I've seen, I thought it
was a Longbikes idea. Evidently not, since your bike has Ryan decals all
over it. Mine has no markings - could be a knock-off for all I know,
except it would be unlikely given the (lack of) financial incentive.
I like straight out fine. It has meant a hard life for the shifters,
but I guess they're replaceable.
