    The handlebar thread (Bend & Width)

    Curious here -
    What are you guys using for handlebars? What brands & what width?
    I'm a light-weight enduro guy on a long track (Marymoor, 400m), in the last two years I've used FSA Energy Traditional Bend 40cm, FSA New Ergo Round 40cm, & recently switched to some no-name 38cm bars that are 31.8 all the way across the tops & super-stiff.

    It's near the end of the season, and this is nothing more than curiosity.

    I am very new to track (4 race nights this season) at the same track as you, I am using a pair of Nitto B123aa (heat treated aluminum) which I got used. I feel like the drop in them is way to deep for me. Right now I'm just trying to dial in the fit of my bike but I will be considering changing them out next season. I will likely do one last race this year and might try out a strait pin seat post to see if that helps me get more comfortable in the drops.

    i'm an enduro, but i've always used B125s. shallow drop, the bend clears my wrists in a sprint, and I've always liked the added weight of steel handlebars.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    Sloth, I wouldn't recommend changing your seat position to make you more comfortable with your handlebars, just the opposite in fact.

    On topic, pretty stoked on my 38cm Easton EC90's!
