Thinking about bars...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thinking about bars...

The handle kind. Swapping out my old Cinelli stem for a super tall Nitto Pearl with a completely different clamp diameter. Means I have to swap bars too. The only question is what to replace my 'traditional' dropped Cinelli bars with. I am enamoured with the older Modolo X-Tenos 8 bend bars, but the only set I have isn't quite my size and they are hard to track down. So, anyone have a recommendation for a good set of single groove bars?

Rarevos,

Check Renaissance cycles they do have a good selection of vintage parts.
If they don't have what you want, send an e-mail to
Baron, its amazing what this guy finds on his buying
trips to Europe.
Additionally there is always e-bay.

I have X-Tenos bars on my trek, love em.

Marty

You could shim the older bars to fit the new stem.
