So it seems the current trend is narrow bars. I assume because narrow bars can find holes easier and are more aero are the reasons behind this. However what about leverage when using your upper body to throw your bike back and forth? I have pretty decent upper body strength and throw my bike a lot when sprinting out of the saddle. While this likely applies more to the road than track, is there much leverage lost/gained by losing 3 to 5 CM of bar width? Plus I like to keep wide elbows to encourage people to come around me high. I have rode 40MM bars on the road and track forever, but I am thinking of going down to the 35 scatto this year for the gains in aero and position.
Just curious if anyone has switched and felt they lost something because of it.
