Trek 560 handlebars

We have a 560 in the co-op, and it still has those awesome drops they come with. Instead of being straight on the top, they curve forward slightly. I want to find a set of those, or some close to it for my fuji build. I was told they might be randoneur bars, but not sure.

I remember those, They're not rando bars but more like criterium bars, but instead of curving forward gradually like other criterium/Gimondi bend type bars, the have a bend near the stem and another bend near where the bake levers are and a straight section between the bend; Can't remember the brand of the bar, but I have seen them for sale at eBay in the past two years....but not for cheap...
The bars look very sporty, but not many people liked them as with most criterium bars, they do not have a nice flat,level portion between the stem and the brake levers to put ones hands on, so be sure you won't miss that position on the bars before you put one on your bike.

What he said. That's the only application of those bars I can recall. Never saw them on another bike in shops or in the wild, but never actually set out to search for them.

Are these the bars? Only picture I could find that shows the odd bend. Photo taken from badger_biker's post in a different thread.

We have an 84 560, its black with red lettering. I googled it once, and a few threads poped up from here, and those had the same bars. I'll take a picture of it,,I know the company name starts with a B, I was told today, they might be criterion bars.the curve in the top is better than regular drops for your wrist and elbows. I might buy the one we have, when I get the money.

Belleri. It's a French manufacturer, but Trek did use them for a while.

HERE is a thread on these forums with pictures of the particular bar being discussed.

Yep, those are them. I might end up buying the trek, and won't need to worry about trying to find a set for my fuji, just throw some cx bars on it.
