    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.

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.
