    shallow drop handlebars

    Can anyone make out what bars these are, or something very close? Maybe the On One Midge?

    I thought Moustache bars don't have that much of a drop...

    Thanks for the link, mconlonx. Those look nice. But, I really like the Junebugs found from your link:

    The midges are off road drop bars, the drops are shallow and flared, designed to be ridding in the drops and not on the hoods. Origin8 makes a version that are closely compared to them and make them in both 25.4mm and 31.8mm.

    Ragley makes the next gen of the midges, called the Luxy. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=54259

    I have these bars on my Rush and love them- didn't really know how I would react when I first got them but I am quick to my brakes and find that climbing is much easier for me personally with them, overall they changed how I ride slightly but I think I am a much better rider since getting them. I tore a ligament in my leg but when it is healed I plan on flipping my hub and can't wait to see how skid stopping will be with these bars- gotta think I could skid stop with these without hands pretty reliably with practice.
