I'm thinking about buying a set of Salsa Bell Lap handlebars. Normally, I use 42 cm handlebars, but I wasn't sure with the way Bell Laps are flared if I should still get 42 cm or if another size is more appropriate.
Are the Bell Laps measured at the bar ends or at the tops?
If I understand the theory correctly, it seems like I would want bars that were about 42 cm at the hoods (based on my should width) and bars that are wider at the drops have a slight handling advantage. Is that right? Close?
Thanks in advance for any help.
