Recommend some road bars please

Postby BMXboy10 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 21:49 pm

Just bought a new Supersix and it came with some C1 super light bars. The bars are really skinny and not very comfortable as I am used to bars with more ergonomic tops (not aero).

Can anyone recommend an alternative with 75 mm reach. Best I can find are the PRO PLT Ergonomic bars for £40. Happy to pay more and go carbon if I like them enough.

Cheers in advance.

Not sure of drop measurement, but am a big fan of the 3T Ergonova/Ernova carbon bars, which (for me) have a really cimfy oval shaped top.

They measure edge to edge though, so get a 44 if you want a traditional 42 etc.

CRC/Wiggle did have them at massive discounts in the summer, not sure if they have any stock left.
I managed to bag a pair for about £65, normally retail for around or in excess of £200.

Ritchey Comp Streem II if you can get them, the new Streem III are still good but I prefer the bend of the II.

I have the first incarnation of the Streem in carbon on my CR1 with matching stem and seatpost, and very nice it is/they are too.
