    i think they should be posted in the ebay/craig's list thread.
    and you're probably just going to ride on the tops anyways...

    Anything you abuse is going to fail sooner or later. Especially aluminum bars. Can't bend 'em back like the steel ones. My advice, don't abuse them.

    Personally I dig the Cinelli Criteriums. They are half way between track bars and road bars and because they don't say "Pista" on them can be found for $25 on ebay. Tops are a bit more useable. Stick em in a nice Cinelli stem and you are golden.
