    The Nitto bars mentioned above would be great, but I don't want to spend near $50 and none of my LBSes carry silver bars.

    Thanks, all!

    it's a bit of a drive from La Habra, but I know Kings in Seal Beach had polished Kalloy 30mm riser bars last week for $20. They're really nice and they'll cut them to whatever size you want for free.

    I bought chrome riser handlebars, rode them for maybe 10 blocks before I swapped back to my flat bars. I'm still in the market for narrow low-rise bars, probably the Nittos.

    I swiped some polished aluminum riser bars off a dumpstered bike and chopped them. look nice with my polished cheapo stem on my conversion. total cost: $0 and 5 minutes of my time. it was a next brand bike btw. those bikes are frequently left abandoned or thrown away.

    I have the nittos in ano gold...I'm not a huge fan of the rise (it's a pretty huge rise)

    I may swap to the nitto flats soon.


    The Nittos are like more than 2x lighter than the cheapo random risers that every LBS carries. I got to compare them side by side and the nittos are awesome

    i was hoping for something with a more subtle rise...i was also considering the flat bars that soma makes, they come in some cool colors also
    not sure if i should try risers or flats
