Anyone have any suggestions on a deep drop/reach bar (old school style) with and here's the rub, a 31.8 diam?
I'm currently using a 3T model and while riding in the drops I feel like my hands are gonna slip off
Thanks in advance.
Ok here's the problem with mine. I took my computer and polar HR mount off to have a looksy. They are Forgie XL's in a 46 width. The problem is my hands are so big that when I ride in the drops there is not enough bar as they abruptly end after the anatomical bend. I have had teh bike (Seven Alaris) for 3 years and it is just now bothering me. As it is a custom build the bar/stem combo is all fitted and dialed into my height. It is still bugging me so maybe I'll track down my bar specs and search for a traditional bar with a similar drop/reach.
It's frustrating finding traditional bend bars in 31.8. I'm having a custom fixed gear and the builder is building a custom lugged stem. The stem is 31.8. I never thought I'd have a problem finding tradition bend bars.... I really wanted silver but they are impossible to find so I bought the reynolds and I'm stipping off the black anodizing in the clamp area.
