Where can i find narrow bull/cow horn handlebars? if such things exist. preferably not wider than 1ft long so i can still weave through tight gaps.

I have never seen such bars... you could do the ol' chop'n'flop on 30cm dropbars?

flatbar + barends.

Be aware that your feet at the pedals are wider than 12" though.

Like Jonny's?

He's like a mouse - he can fit through any gap he can get his skull through.

Nitto's pursuit bullhorns (RB-021) go down to a 38cm as stock.

Measure the width of your shoulders - if they're more than 38cm wide (which I suspect they are, if you're male and a full-grown adult), you need go no narrower.

But shoulders can be twisted to make them narrower.
That said the legal minimum width in the UK is 350mm

This is very true. However, doing this on a bicycle, weaving through traffic at speed, is probably a little unsafe...

If it is a saloon car I find it easier to bunny hop on to the boot and ride over the top than go round, at least that is what I do in my dreams.

Bear in mind that cars are narrower at the pedal height than they are at bar height :]

Bullhorns will be your limiting factor trying to squeeze through gaps.
First time you catch one of the ends will be your last!

My 38cm Nitto Drops will breeze past you everytime...

Speak to O'bree about which particular washing machine you need to destroy in order to reduce the Q-factor of your steed :)

44cm wide, 30cm side on. Arse measured in metres.

Nothing personal, I kill all threads.

Hey I was on-topic and all!

These are the skinniest I can find. You can get Nitto drops down to 34cm but I'd rather have them wider and just go around shit rather than through gaps that aren't really gaps.

Just get mtb bar ends clamped onto a straight bar that's been cut down just wider than the stem.
