    Trekking Bar...where to buy

    So went to Nashbar and I couldn't find the trekking bar anymore. Called customer service...got India...and they said they 'guess' they don't have them anymore...

    What other brands make trekking bars?

    Thanks

    REI used to have them but I am not seeing them on their website. You might want to call them.

    Keep in mind if you want to use a mirror on the bars, look at the mirror from Ortleib and Zefal has the "SPY".

    Good mirror recommendation. I was looking for one but opted for helmet-mounted mirror. Not so sure if I like it, may switch.

    Kalloy makes a trekking bar. I believe that is the one listed on eBay auction above. I bought that one from that same guy and I like it. Good deal for the price.

    My hunch is Nashbar is just out of stock. If they don't have an item ready to ship it does not show on the website.

    Nashbar has not had them for a few months now. Either they stopped carrying them or they are coming in "on a slow boat from China".
