I had not seen these before:
Soma "Bonzo" bars. 200mm of drop (30mm more than steel B123s), 120mm of reach (12mm more than steel B123s). In widths from 38-48cm. That all seems very impractical to me.
The curve is sexy, but they're just too bulky overall.
Now we just need the wheels...
since hipsters just ride on the tops it makes sense.
reach curve and drop are just for looks.
Damn that's a low spoke count. no wonder those wheels are so far out of round.Originally Posted by 
Love the name. I couldn't use them, but I bet there's some guys built like Orangutans out there that have been waiting for someone to make bars like those.Originally Posted by mcatano
i need some context to see how big seem. context, people. context.

it seems pretty practical if you think of a guy who's 6'4", 180-200 lbs. and riding a 61cm frame.Originally Posted by mcatano
those are about the same size as the 3t bars, no?
but yea, curvaceous.
im 6'4, i weight 210, and my frame is 61. i dont know if id use these. kinda too much.
i dont weight, do i. i weigh. dammit.
I'm pretty sure 3T measures their bars from outside to outside (not c-c like Nitto, eg). Therefore, their measurements make the bars sound like they're bigger but they're not.Originally Posted by adamkell

well, i'm 6'4" 220, so yeah...these may workOriginally Posted by summerinside
please don't beat me up.
The trick is to have oury grips up on the tops, so you can leave the rest of the bars untaped and still use a $40 top tube protector.Originally Posted by baxtefer
does anyone actually have these on their bike? i'd liek to see what they look like mounted.

I had discovered these a few days ago. I don't care what you people say, I'm buying them... I have B123 (38cm) and I've always thought they were ugly. (but who can afford steel cinellis?) Plus I would like the huge reach and drop, I think. plus the somas are only $30.
they are ugly. a kid here has them. the bend (front) extends too far forward. the drop (down) looks fine. i base this all aethetically cause i've never ridden them. just sayin' is all.
wait. you agree that 123s are ugly? or are you saying the somas are ugly?
