    T1 only makes one pair the T1 bars and the Rueben bars.. and also.. beerman can't tell you specifically what you need.. he gave you good makes.. you can then look at what you need within those makes.. T1 bars are my favorite.

    There are like 1000 pairs of bars on the market. YOU have to decide what you like as far as style and affordability goes in a handlebar. Then post a few of the ones that you are thinking about and you can afford.

    It is the same with bike frames and other stuff. There are a LOT of good companies these days and they all make very comparable products. No product will last forever (though some come close) so you have to be ready for it to break in a year or two if you ride hard.

    But, PICK some bars you are looking at first, then ask. You will likely hear: "Yes, all the bars you listed are excellent, you decide." OR... "Dude, I run (handlebar name) they totally rule! Get those!" My guess is that whatever you get from a reliable company will make you happy if YOU actually are comfortable with all the other aspects of the bars. ie: width, height, design, style, sweep, etc.

    I would have listed specific bars, but all of the bars made by those brands are good, and you didn't give a suggested height, weight, or width to work with.

    I have heard good about the T1 bars. I believe the slim bars are almost the the same size as the T1's with 7.1 rise.
    Shizzle dizzle!
