Does anyone know of anything similar to Syntace Stratos 200s? I'm looking for a set of bullhorns with a slight drop and sweepback, and the Stratos 200 fit the bill perfectly, but I can't find them anywhere. I know iMiNUSD sells Stratos 400s (40mm drop rather than 20mm).

About the only thing similar I've found are the RB-002/001. The 200's have been discontinued for a while so the only really option is hoping to pick up a used set on ebay/cl

RB002 ftw. Eff me for putting them in my quill stem. Now I'm too lazy to unwrap the bars to take them out and put them on the TET.

I have to admit I'm not too fond of the 'horns pointing inward' thing.

Syntace stratos have it, and I know rb-002 have it though I've never tried them.

It makes climbing in the horns really wonky. My ideal bar:

-backsweep like rb-002 and syntace stratos
-drop like syntace stratos 400
-straight, parallel 'arms' and horns.
-no cable routing
-available in narrow width.
-available in black

The swept in horns on RB-002s and similar bars actually put your hands and wrists in a more natural position than bars with straight horns.
