    Where can I find a 48cm (or wider) road bar with 31.8mm bar clamp???!!!

    Where can I find a 48cm (or wider) or road bar with 31.8mm bar clamp???!!! I am a Clydesdale with wide shoulders and my 44cm roadbar is just to uncomfortable on long rides. Please let me know if any of you have found wider bars with a 31.8mm bar clamp, and where I can buy them. Thanks!!!!

    I posted this in the general forum, but this is a much better place to post.

    Nitto Noodle bars

    I know these aren't 31.8mm clamp - but they are 48cm. Maybe you can get a smaller clamp?

    I can't speak highly enough about them either - very very comfortable. I had to spend a heap on postage to get them to NZ - but they were worth it. I'm heavy and put a bit of pressure on these bars - especially when climbing - but they feel very strong and safe.

    Thanks for the suggestion! It looks like the Nitto bars are the only game in town for us.

    Salsa Bell Lap bars come in 46cm w/ 31.8 clamp. Not 48, I know, but there's a bit of a flare at the ends and they seem to run wider than other 46's I've seen.
