How to size track drop bars (vs. road bars)
Question: I'm looking for some track drop bars - maybe Nitto b125s. Here's my question - I know that to size road bars take the width of your shoulders (balls of your shoulders) and add 2 cm if the bars are measured center-to-center. I measure about 41 cm in this regard, so use 42cm or 44cm road bars. However, now in looking for track bars - I rarely see anything even as large as 40cm. Do you size these differently than road bars?
Thanks in advance...
