Clyde Bars and Stem . . . for cycling that is
OK maybe we could use a Clyde bar for sampling the latest brews, but that's not what this is about, sorry ;-)
I'm looking for a shortish drop bars, a la salsa poco but not so narrow. Lightweight, but aluminum.
Maybe Ritchey classic road, maybe the salsa cyclocross bars. I even liked the flat top bars but lack of wrap/slippery/sweat/slipping off on our potholed roads has me wondering.
Main consideration is comfort, safety, durability, price. I don't need a deep drop, since I'm an older rider and like the top of the saddle level with the tops of the bars, and mostly use the drops for a change of pace, or to hunker down in a stiff headwind.
So what's working for y'alls?
