    Do these handle bars exist?

    I'm looking for matte black track drops (like Deda Pistas) with a 25.4 clamp size. Can't find them anywhere. Suggestions?

    Nitto makes shiny black ones. Any shop with an EAI account should be able to get you a pair.

    Yep, ano'd black B123AA's. Or you could buy regular B123AA's and get them ano'd yourself, or get them powdercoated, or cover them completely in black bar tape...

    Yeah, I considered that. But again, I wanted to go with matte black ones if I can find them. Other than buying a stem with a 31.8 clamp size, I'm thinking my options might be limited.

    I personally like the feel of the deda pistas (31.8 clamp size) more than a non tapered bar, well worth the extra money for a new stem.

    You're probably right. But I just bought a new stem and it's hard for me to justify buying another right now. That's why I was looking for a 25.4mm alternative.
