Bullhorn bars on hybrid

edited September 2013 in Commuting general
I'm am hoping to fit a Charge Slice bullhorn bar to my Trek 7.2 FX and was wondering if any one had any experience of this. I understand that fitting the gears/brakes might be a challenge.

My alternative solution is to fit a shorter flat bar, putting bar ends on and then taping the whole lot up to give the appearance of a bullhorn bar. Again, anyone have any experience of this?

The reason I want skinnier bars is for partly for commuting, partly for looks and partly to give a steering feel like a road bike. The bar end / bullhorn extension will be more comfortable particularly for climbing.

Thanks for any thoughts.
