    Clubman Project, Drops Needed

    Can someone point me in the right direction; I'm looking for a set of 22.2MM drop handlebars for a Clubman project. I already checked Velo Orange, but no luck.

    Anybody have a such an animal in their stash they'd be willing to trade for?

    I think everyone with a modern Internal Gear hub would like to find the same as well.

    I think you'll find one on a low-end tenspeed, like a Varsity, won't you? Might be narrow, steel, and heavy... but it'll work, won't it?

    Okay, I checked, and yes. The handlebar on the junker Centurion Signet in my garage is indeed 22.2 mm. It's chrome, it's narrow (like 14 1/2"), and there's some ugly rust and pitted chrome in the central section where there was no bar tape. Aside from all that, I don't think it's a good looking bar anyway. It is, in my opinion, not worth the cost of shipping it anywhere. You can find a better bar on any old junker Free Spirit, Huffy, &c.
