so i want new handlebars for mine, and i can't seem to find what size they are. if i had a printer atm, i could conveniently print out one of those convenient paper mm rulers, but i dont have access to one these days, so i'm sure someone knows.
as for the other question, my father asked me what's better about larger wheels, and i wasn't quite sure of the answer. not width, but the 700 diameter. why do track bikes use this specific wheel sizing.

i'm not sure what's "better" about larger wheels anymore than there might be anything "better" about smaller wheels, at least for road use. track bikes aren't the only ones to use 700c wheels, it's the standard for all road bikes, cyclocross bikes, and starting to make it's way into mountain biking. for the record, 700c isn't a measurement of anything, 700c wheels are actually 622mm in diameter, which are actually smaller than the old 27" road wheels (630mm)

no ones ever swapped bars on one before? sry, just my question is kind of time-based.

Are you confined to researching this on the internet? Cant you just measure them? Are you running out of time on an eBay auction?
With a little research, I found THIS (http://velospace.org/node/9497) bike with a stock stem and IRO bars. Then I went to the IRO website and found the only set of dropbars they offer is 26mm. I would go as far as to assume the stock bars are 26mm... but I would still measure them LOL. Even if the stem is a 25.4mm, 26mm bars still fit in a 2-pc stem.
