Hello all, I'm pretty sure once upon a time the handlebars Velo-Orange lists as their own were made by Nitto. Is that still the case? Cheers

I don't ever remember that being the case. They come from quite a few importers nowadays, what model are you thinking about?

I would guess that if they were made by anyone who's name would improve the sales, they'd show the name. So probably some company you never heard of.
It's possible that Nitto didn't make the items branded by them, either.

I've gone from Cinelli model 66 to the Cinelli 64 as I'm not as flexible as I once was. But I put a set of Maes bars on the bike that I ride the most and those are my new favorite.

I would call and inquire about it, but everyone knows they dont pickup the phone to talk to customers.

I have never had that problem. Every question I have had was answered. However, I am local to them and will probably check out the shop in person.

Hello - thinking of buying a set of Course Handlebars from VO to replace a very old set of CODA bars. (I got a bunch of other work to do on the bike. The Rivendell folks gave some general advice about being careful using very old handlebars. My CODA bars have to be from the '80s.....)

Any feedback who is making VO bars? NITTO? Dajia Cycleworks? Joe's House of Handi-bars?

Thanks.

Call and ask is all I can say. I like the look and design of the Nouveau Randonneur Handlebar, but want to see and measure it.

I have a VO stem (not a quill stem) and it is very well machined and super well finished. No origin country on the box, but the plastic bag inside says Taiwan.

Keep in mind, many businesses with house-branded items will not tell the manufacturer for contractual or business reasons. It is not limited to bicycles.
