    OS track drops

    i'm looking for a pair of narrow track drops with an oversize stem clamp. like 38cm c-c. any ideas?

    i like the deda pista/velocita but they only come in 42cm outside to outside.

    Bars are usually measured centre to centre no?

    $300 worth of 38cm OS awesomeness.

    heh, that's the best i could find. narrow width and OS clamp really haven't come together yet.

    i have a friend who rides the OS deda velocitas on a CSK frame and really likes them, but he's fairly new to the track, so i can't guarantee he won't hate them by the end of the season. i'd typically say screw it and get a wider size 'n deal with it, but i switched from a 40cm to a 38cm and there's a noticable difference.

    good luck finding something!

    Nitto measures C-C, but Deda measures O-O. A 40cm O-O bar will come close to a 38mm C-C bar, depending on the OD of the drops.

    They make a 26 to 31.8 shim, I imagine you could use that to make some conventional Nitto drops work in the stem.

    you should have just stopped riding so you could focus on color coordination
