Nitto number...ID?????

I thought Nitto B115 was a specific model but I have now seen the Nitto Olympiade bars called 114 and 115. Is this a mistake or does that number represent somthing else?

I may be wrong but I think the B115 just reference a model or a particular shape. mine just have Nitto on the drive side and B115 450 on the other side. great bars nice and classic looking IMHO

Thats what I thought as well...
I thought there was a Nitto B115 model and a Nitto Olympiade model, but when searching for info Im finding people referring to the Olympiades as Nitto Olympiade 114 and Nitto Olympiade 115... hmmm

Hi. Old post, but I was wondering the same thing.

The shape of drop bars will vary based on the number and placement of the bends, the angles of the bends and the radii of the bends. At a minimum, you can see by the pics that the 114s are bulged at the clamp, where the 115s are sleeved. I don't know if they are different in the other three respects. I'm planning to pick up a set of inexpensive and narrow 114s for my daughter, and will compare them to the wide 115s I have on my bike. I'll let you know what I find.
