    Salsa Cowchipper Handlebar width

    Hi everybody,

    I just got the Salsa Cowchipper handlebar in size 42 for my LHT. Anyone else have these bars?
    The reason I ask is because the width at the hoods is 42 and the drops flare to a whopping 54(!!!!!).

    I think I want a 44 width at the hoods, but I really dont want the drops to be any wider. Im hoping the drop width stays constant as the hood with gets wider.

    -->My question would be if anyone has these bars in a 44, how wide are they at the drops?

    then You want regular drop bars that dont flare the drops , I presume , some of Nitto's heat treated bars Perhaps ?

    lots of versions of WTB dirt drop now, with flared drops, the Cunningham prototype was a re-bent Cinelli 64.

    I see this was posted a month ago, but I just got my Woodchippers. Yes, the are wider! I have the 44 cm Woodchippers, just installed on Monday. I ran down to measure, they are 24 inches (61cm) center-to-center at the barends. You should look at the Cowchippers to have less flare but some flare.

    I LOVE my Woodchippers on the Pugsley!

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I'm blaming you. There's a difference.
