    "V" Handlebars

    Here's the thing: I custom built my own bike, I found a handle bar that came from an old kid's bike that went straight up: flaring out from the straight cross-section like a "v'. Then my bike was stolen and now I can't find another handlebar like the one I had on this continent. I'm trying to rebuild what was stolen. Has anyone seen this kind of handlebar? Is there a name for this kind of handlebar?. Any info will be appreciated. I don't know where to look.

    all guesses, stemming from you saying they were from a kids bike. try searching with those words.

    I think I know the bars you are talking about. There is a set on an American Eagle road bike at a bike co-op by my house. I will try to get some photos of it next Tuesday when they are open.

    What you are likely looking for are called Flatland Bars.
