I'm considering purchasing a Cannondale Bad Boy 8, Trek Soho 4.0 or similar (hybrid with alfine setup) but don't want flat bars. I like the nitto moustache bars but don't believe they will work on these bikes due to their size vs. size needed for the shifters/brakes and stem. Has anyone seen a moustache bar that fits the afline components?
Road bike is a Bianchi C2C, Gary Fisher Mt Bike, Trek Tandem & 1980's Grandis
I am debating making a similar purchase for my soon to be single speed Eddy Merckx old school Ti frame. I wanted to make it different so the moustache bars may beit. I hav eyet to buy or even see a pair. From what I have read everyone who uses them luv them..
Let me know if you get a pair
Maybe check out the Nitto Dove or Albatross (Al. or Cr-Mo) bars. All have 25.4mm clamp and 22.2mm (flat-bar/MTB standard) bar diameter. I've used the Dove bars and they look pretty similar to the Albatross but they're cheaper and don't accept bar-ends. They don't have the same feel as moustache bars.
Assuming Alfine is mtb clamp size, I believe Nashbar is selling a steel moustache with mtb clamp diameters. But I could be mistaken. As stated above, there are Nitto bars with semi-moustache profiles built with mtb diameters. Be careful, though, as I suspect the actual "Moustache" is the only one that is comfortable to ride and clamp brake levers on the curve.
On one makes a couple wide-profile drops that might answer, like the Midge.
