    Where can i find bars like these?

    This pic is from the Australian Track bike thread.



    I was wondering if anyone knows where i can get some bars that might be similar. All the bullhorns that i've seen seem really boxy but these seem pretty curvy and go up pretty high which seems like it'd be pretty comfortable.

    Laura (geoGraphicFTD) had some bullhorns that were kind of similar, they were very curvy, almost like chopped and flipped track drops (but I think she said they weren't).

    They might have been these Nittos:

    hey blickblocks thanks a lot, this is pretty much exactly what i was looking for!

    I tried to look it up on google, but a bunch of japanese stuff came up. Have any idea how I might be able to find out more about these bars?

    I don't know, maybe call a LBS or OBS that carries Nitto stuff and see if they could order one for you?

    Other option would be to just actually chop and flop.

    I think those nittos are rb-123's or something like that. They're part of that collaboration that nitto had with those japanese pro skaters I believe. Factory chopped bars are so sexy, I chopped a few bars with a pipe cutter and the edges still aren't as nice.

    I don't know how you'd get them in the US since they're probably japanese domestic market... unless someone from japan would like to get them and offer them up in the ssfg forums....

    if you want that effect, chop and flop the right drops.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    those bars are either 3ttt or some sort of cinelli bullhorn that's probably out of production.

    edit: here are some cinelli la 84 bullhorns:

    I seem to recall that in that original thread where the picture appeared someone with a great deal of knowledge about those riders and their machines pointed out that they were 3ttt of ttt bars. I think he noted that the company changed their naming/stamping at some point. It might have been forum member "oldsprinter." But, maybe my mind is playin' tricks on me...

    i can't understand why they wouldn't flip the ferrule over as well
    if they really were a special production

    still seems like an afterthough
