OK, so I know how to size my normal bars (I'm a 42cm) but with sprinter's bars they are much more narrow, 38 down to about 33. Is there a rule for what size you need compared to your normal ones or is it just as thin as you can manage?

    I wouldn't rush into 33s especially as you're rocking the grass track they're rather twtchy I found. I rock 38 road bars fits in most gaps and still rather narrow.
    It's not so much about winning, I just hate losing.

    Thanks Lee, I've got some road ones for the grass track anyway so may give them a go first
