The packaging looks legit, but the logo on the bars are not solid white like all the other pics on the net. I got those exact bars and they have solid white "Syntace" logos

Maybe the newer models changed? I don't know.

Could be just a clone because I had Tsunami bars I got at a swap meet that were exact clones of the Zeros.

I know there is this one seller on ebay that appear to sell unofficial Ritchey Biomax bars. These were most likely just the exact same model by the original Asian manufacturers who overproduce them and sell them on the side.

Under the same brand name?? Probably just a regional difference in finish/packaging.

whats so special about them?

well what i mean is....why do people like them? just curious, im sort of in the market for some bars.

i have standard bullhorns from soma, me likey.
i have rb021s, and the drop seems a touch aggressive, and im not super keen on the flats.

i see these have drop but not too much, and they angle back at the flats a touch.


so are these like super comfy or something? i might pick these up if they have good feedback.

I run these bars, and they are incredible. What makes them so nice is the sweep back right before the bars bend out toward the horns; it makes riding on the tops and bends incredibly comfortable. I have this exact model, the 200's, and the drop is nowhere near as severe as the drops on the RB-021's. These are a good intermediate between flat bullhorn bars and those with significant drop.

I've been trying to buy those from him for almost 2 months. If I can get them from him I have a brand new set in the small size (38 or 39cm) that I could sell you.

I might be interested in a trade if I can't get the medium 200's from adriano. If I can I will sell them.

That's actually the ebay store of the shop in chicago where I bought the small bars (Cycle smithy). They are all out of medium and small now. I don't know why the ebay page says there are still 9 available, there is no buy button.
