Radonneur Bars

Looking for 44 or 45 cm with a 26mm clamp size. Can anyone recommend a vendor? Lp

If you're not in the Association of English Majors, then Nitto's "Raundoneur" is still in production, I think; at least they're available from just about any source.
Here's a link to the Velo Orange website, handlebar page. Check out the Belleri model, too. V-O's Nittos are 25.4, and Belleri are 25 mm however -- you'd need a shim for either.

And then there's the SR "Ranndner" bar. They show up on eBay fairly regularly.

If you watch Ebay and try to check out Ben's Cycles from Milwaukee, you should be able to find Nitto Randonneur (my vote on spelling) bars in 26 mm clamp diameter.

Be careful about the width spec. Rando bars are flared, that is, the rams' horn section is bent out. The width of the bar across the ramps is (for my pair) about 39 cm, and at the flatpart of the drops it's about 45 cm. At the front of the rams horn it's around 43 cm. Which measurement are you concerned about?

I also use 40 cm and 42 cm Noodles, so this Rando bar is a good fit for me.

I use 44 cm ergos on my road bikes. Thought I would do something different on my vintage project.
I like the Cinelli crit bars too but I have been unable to find them in a 44 cm width.

I am living proof that biology majors cannot spell. Lp
