Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

New Nitto RB-0010 - bar diameter question

Thinking about picking these up. The clamp area is 25.4...would the bar diameter be 24? I have the rb-018 (26 clamp / 24 bar) with a brake on the bar portion. I don't see cross levers less than 24mm. Would want to use current lever...making sure before purchase.

Those bars actually look like their shaped a little different from the rb-002. The horn ends don't turn up as much and the curves are larger.
Please post up a review when you get the bars!

Well, I'd assume they're shaped different or they wouldn't have a different name. lol

Those pics are deceiving. RB-002s aren't swept back.

what's cool about the rb-0010 is that they come in 40cm...think the rb-002 was only 38cm.

i think the rb-002 does have a slight sweep back...every pic i have seen they do. or maybe they photograph like they do...i dunno.

rb-002

I have RB-002s on my bike. They don't sweep back, it's just the angle they're usually shot in photos, of the downward bend, that makes them look that way.

The width seems to be the only difference that I can tell..

It looks as though there might be some confusion here.
The bars you linked to are the rb010AA, here, which from the description is shaped differently from the rb002 and some sort of collaboration with Tokyo Fixed.
The actual rb001 is in fact the same as rb002 with a 25.4 clamp (but im just going by a previous thread I found in bikeforums comparing the two bars).
Judging from the pics those rb010AA look to have less upturn on the horns and more curve on the bends, which I like. Wish I had found these before ordering my rb002's.

they were listed as RB0010 on TFG's blog and then as RB010AA in the store.

in any case, not sure if $98 shipped to the states is worth it now...hmmmmmmmmmmm.
