    Alloy handle bar

    hello
    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?
    thanks. Jonathan

    Nitto and Deda both make several track drops in sizes that are <40cm

    Deda Velocita are basically the CroMoly versions of the Deda Pistas and only come in a polished/chrome finish.

    Nitto B123 are the same as the NJS bars used in Japanese keirin, but come in 31.8 clamp size and can also be had in 39cm.

    Cobra Track bars, though I have never heard of them before.

    Hope this helps

    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.

    Have a look here:

    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.
