    Where can I get a silver, matt finish trekking bar?

    I want to change my Sirrus's flat bar for a trekking bar. The stem, seat post, and spacers are matt finish silver. I found Profile bar ends that have the same texture and colour, but I can't find any trekking handlebars for sale that have a similar finish. The bar at Velo Orange is shiny silver, and the one at Nashbar is black. REI has the handlebar I need, but its on the Novara Safari - and the shop guys at REI tried to see if they could order it separately for me but couldn't find the part listed in their catalogue.

    FYI - you can see the Sirrus colours here:

    Anyone here have suggestions on where I can find a matt finished, silver trekking handlebar?

    Buy some Nashbar black ones and bead blast them=silver matte finish.I haven't seen any matte finished ones,black or silver.

    If yours are matte finished,chances are they are anodized silver.

    BBB has both finishes on their trekking bars.. UK based SJS one source..

    ask a Bike shop if they have an account with Bike Mine, a distribution company out of Oklahoma City

    they have the US distribution deal with BBB.. I got some BBB stuff thru R&E in Seattle.
