Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Handlebar size on a Pista?

See title, thanks.

Just bought a Pista and want to get some different bars for a change up. What sizes fit?
Any you guys prefer?
Thanks.

handlebars are a very personal choice, ask 10 people and you will get 10 answers.

I would like to first try some Bullhorns, then do risers. I guess my mentality is it would be nice to have the stock drops, bullhorns, and risers to choose from. Maybe I'm crazy.

26.4mm is old cinelli. My 03' Pista is 26.0mm. I run ritchey pro handlebars and really like them.

I just saw most Ritchey's are 31.8mm. How would that fit a 26mm clamp?

31.8 bars will not fit into a 26mm clamp stem.
you can do viseversa. 26mm bars in a 31.8 clamp but using shims
