Modolo Yuma Trekking bars

These bars look very interesting to me, but I can't find any USA, British, or Australian vendors. I couldn't copy a link directly to the description, so after you click on the link you have to click on Products and then chose them from the product list, they are in group H. Here is the link https://www.modolo.com/

Has anyone used these? I'd be especially interested in hearing from any women or other narrow shouldered types. Does anyone know of a dealer online that carries them?

Robin Thorn carries them at SJS Cycles. You can mail order them. He told me they have some flex to them under heavy loads for touring and only recommends them for light or credit card touring. 49.99 British Pounds=90.00 dollars US.

Here's the link, scroll down to Handlebars and then on the right side they are a couple models down...

Nashbar carries one bar that's similar idea, inexpensively I might add: https://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...ype=&estoreid=

In the UK, St John St Cycles has some: https://www.sjscycles.com/store/vIndex.htm

I bought the Nashbar version but have not installed it yet. It does seem rather usable. I'll be mounting it "upside down" (I think), several different ways to use the bar, it seems.

Thanks guys. I understand why Google didn't pick up the Nashbar generic, but I don't see how they missed SJS.

Jean, here is another link for you to another thread on this forum, where we were talking about these handlebars. I just ordered the Nashbar ones, and they were shipped out this morning. I can't wait!!

I have Butterfly bars on my Novarra Safari which I like a lot. Many hand positions from upright to aerodynamic, very comfortable and utilitarian. My 2003 uses the softride suspension stem which I guess has been discontinued so they use Ritchey angle adjustable stem in the 2004. It has grip shifters which do the job and have given me no trouble but I'm not really a big fan of them. The 2002 and earlier models had bar end shifters and I've been contemplating switching out the grips for those. So a positive reccomendation from me.
