    Nitto Dream Bars

    No, not the actual Nitto dream bars... I've been looking to experiment with some more eccentric upright handlebars. Now, I remember looking at a web page with a much wider selection of Nitto bars then I seem to be able to find now. Including more square-shaped north road bars, something comparable to the Soma Noah's Arc bar but with some drop, something like the Soma Noah's Arc that was a perfect semi-circle, etc...

    I've been searching and I'm beginning to think that I had a dream about sweet, eccentric bicycle parts. If that's the case, I guess it's time to invest in a tube bender.

    Question 1: Do these weird bars exist?

    Question 2: Have any of you had dreams about non-existant bikes/parts?

    i have had dreams in which i ride a much nicer bike than i actually do... but i've never dreamed of specific non-existant parts.

    however: i have been looking for a shirt i saw once. it's a huge pack of riders on the front and it says SWARM over it. anyone seen that anywhere or was it a dream too?

    sorry for the thread hijack.

    maybe check the rivendell catalog

    there is a nitto "dream bar," but it's a little more mundane than what i think you're describing... http://www.rivbike.com/webalog/handl...ape/16081.html

    You're thinking of the nitto promenade bars.

    Check out near the bottom of the page. Ben's cycles has pretty good prices on them.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Wow, that's getting bookmarked for sure.

    anyone know of the $18 Velo Racing saddle they have listed is this one? . I need a new saddle of a similar style on a VERY limited budget. I'm guessing the $18 is a cheap one that sucks though.

    real narrow promenade bars, say like 39cm, would be the hotness if you flipped them over and had them like bullhorns
