    Been looking for something like this? The differences are minuscule to my untrained eye.

    I've wondered about a lot of things covered in that video. Right now I have 5 sets of drop bars for my track bike. I'm about to order a 6th. All because of the stuff covered in that article. I'm hunting for the perfect bar.

    When Adriano said, "finding your happy drop bar is a great day. ", he wasn't kidding. And like the article says, "One cyclist’s ergonomic heaven is another’s hell.". This is so true.

    I need a set of bars with the right curve, reach, drop, forearm clearance, that are strong enough for standing starts.

    Ever wonder why Victoria Pendleton rides $125 Nitto B123 Heat Treated bars when she has had one-off custom carbon bars made only for her? Because she found the perfect curve for her.



    That frame is estimated to have cost tens of thousands of dollars to make. The wheels are $3,500...each. Cranks are $3,000, etc... and she uses $125 bars that have the perfect curve for her.

    I think they are B123AA. The B125AA are about 1.5-2cm shorter in drop.

    I need to find the perfect set of drops for me. I just got some Cinelli Crit's to try out.
    Until I do...I think RB-021's are my ideal bar. Right now I find myself in the drop position almost all the time.
