Effective handlebar reach, Soma Sparrow
Anyone here used the Soma Sparrow handlebar?
currently trying the medium width 520mm version, and feel like i'd prefer a wider spread hand position
thinking of getting the 560mm but was worried about the effective reach.
This would depend on how the different bars are constructed:
-if the different widths all use identical bends, and simply have the straight swept end sections cut differently, then in order to use the wide hand position I'd also need to push the bars farther forward with a longer stem
; this is problematic since I'm already using a 130mm stem and longer ones are a pain to find in modern faceplate style (needed to mount the curvy bars)
-if the different widths are due to the bends actually being spaced wider then no worries
So, anyone here happen to have tried both variants who might know how they are different? Thanks
