My favorite: ibis titanium, but these are hard to find.


I cant remeber if its gil or simon connel who has the info. but the original UK ibis importer still had a few ibis ti bars NOS last time I asked. yeh I like them but they're fairly narrow at 22in wide. titus have made custom ti bars (not sure if they still do), $85, as do seven cycles, uncertain on price, but they're both solid performing bars.

I recently swung a True Temper bar on my Yo. Sturdy bar in neon yellow - very retro. The Fat is made out True Temper also, what makes a good match.

I have a lead to a nice USE bar :wink: => http://cgi.ebay.com/USE-Lenker-Bar-Ends ... dZViewItem

I have an Ibis but it's even shorter as cut down! (not by me) - 21"

(could be persuaded to sell)

Mmmmm the bulge :)

I have a Zoom 150 flat bar in my spare parts bin if you want it. Circa 1991 but very, very little used. £10 posted?

I can vouch for this story, the guy in question (Mike) used to run the Ibis importer here in the UK, I bought a ti bar off him last year when he was ebaying off the last remaining NOS frames....checked to see if I still have his email address but I can't find it......really nice, helpful guy though :D

Said he had lots of old T's, alu stems and key rings too, his ebay id is escortfanatic if that's any good to you all.
