i'm a 55 yo guy just started riding track. i'm a weak beginner and been lurking here for a while. i noticed that i my stock handle bar width is 420mm on my 2010 fuji track comp 54cm and it feels the handle bar is too wide. so, i was looking for a alloy 380mm bar and it seems hard to find one. can someone help me here?
Nitto B123AA (deep drop) and B125AA (compact short and shallow drop) sprint bars are excellent choices in alloy bars. I know they are available in 36, 38, & 40cm sizes and probably a few more. I know that the Nitto B123 steel versions are available in 1cm increments in Japan 36-42cm.
Milwaukee Bikes (aka Ben's Cycle) is a reputable company with a great selection of track gear. So is Business Cycles. I've ordered from both. If you order from Business Cycles, do it over the phone. I don't think their online ordering system works. But the guy on the phone is really nice and helpful.
