like the silver one

what are the bars (of both) ? :wink:

I am gathering parts to build a townie with an alfine and quite like those shapes (the "red" one is slighly different and looks more modern ? a semi riser from MTB range or else ?)

thanks

Could I talk you into getting drops on the Europa? There's a little whippet of a racing bike in there waiting to get out. I really love the Team Raleigh colours - in fact, I have just become a Europa owner myself...
