I'm getting back into cycling after too many years of 50's sloth. I'm building up a bike to teach myself wrenching and make it thoroughly my own. Either a sweet, used-to-be-new De Rosa or a Habanero frame.
My question: I currently ride with a Nitto noodle bar...I like the flat ramps behind the hoods with the hooks at the bottom still almost just above parallel to the road. (I don't like rotating bars so far upward to get flat ramps that riding the then steeply angled drops is uncomfortabe.)
Is there an alloy, 26.0 clamp anatomic bar anyone knows of that comes close to what I want? (I realize the trend wave in bars/stems is way past my intended build. But I like the look and versatililty of traditional quilled stems and don't find threaded headsets a problem.
Thanks....I've learned a ton here at Fifty Plus and gotten enough inspiration to keep me going into my 80's. I never thought getting back in shape could also be so much fun.
