suggestions for Albatross-style bars w/ zero rise?
 
i'm looking for handlebars that are pretty much the same shape and width of the nitto albatross / soma oxford handlebars, but without any rise.

does anyone know of any out there that exist?

thanks!

The Albatross bars have just a little rise,....so i doubt you'd even notice it. I have 2 of the lighter hardened alloy versions that i planned on using on a few city bike builds, but the rise just wasn't enough for my taste when i first tried them last year.

Someday i may try them again, now that i've built a few bikes up with an uncut full lenght fork. (300mm and 350mm steerer :-)

Flip them and you'll never notice any change in rise.:)

I flipped the Nitto Dove bar on this bike.

VO has some, not by Nitto, nor named after birds.
