    Lino and Eighth Inch.

    And, you can swipe one from some LBS stocking Charge bikes if you are lucky. They need some getting used to, so some people swap out the drop to a riser or something. I got mine this way.

    seriously...
    cock-eyed... not to mention the weird-looking placement of levers.... maybe i'm crazy, but i can't imagine having my hands in the position required to comfortably pull the lever...

    Looks like a standard mustache bar to me. Am I missing something?

    they're deeper, more towards the trackdrop end of the spectrum... similar to some degree, but definitely different bars...

    I have the eighthinch bars that are very similar to those.

    They aren't really designed for brake levers... I have my front brake lever mounted in the same place of the bar (a bit closer to the stem, the clamp bulge of the eighthinch bar is smaller) and I had to point them very far downward to clear the curve of the bars. Other than that, I really like the proportions of the bar... they aren't as deep as normal track drops so they are better suited for street riding. But keep in mind that they really only have one hand position.

    I have some bars from charge that are pretty much the exact same as those. They are up for grabs, shoot me a pm if you are interested.

    I don't know but those bars are not centered on that stem.

    I like those charge bars though.
    Because, yeah... uh huh! Umm, yeah!
