I did a search and couldn't find much relating to bars besides "buy what feels right".
What here is the drop bar of choice for clydes?
I was measured at RBM and they suggested a 46. I wanted to stay with Aluminum so I checked out the Easton EA70. After reading reviews (which I am glad I did), many people complained that there was way too much flex. At 245 I was looking for something very stiff.
Ideally I am looking for; minimal drop, very stiff, works well with shimano shifters/brake levers, strong (wont break if my dog knocks my bike over and the bars hit the ground), and black.
Thanks for the input.
