Looking for some flat red bars...

Like a tit I sold a spanky new X-Lite one a couple of months ago and now have found a use for it :roll:

So... If anyone's got any knocking about or could recommend some nice light new ones (it's not for a retro build) let me know :)

Got these - never ridden, retro club roost numbers.
Small scratch from removing grips where the grips go if u get me otherwise spotless

How retro are they? Are they from the era of stupidly light, or a more sensible weight? They are for a modern bike so won't be ridden delicately...

As cce says 95-96 era

They are a shade under 590mm wide & indeed say 150 on them. They dont feel scary light...

IDB 150 bars are good. I won a set in a race in 95 and gave them to a friend who is still using them hard!

I'm the one who had the X Lites off you. I haven't fitted them yet but have them earmarked for a bike but if your needs are greater than mine.... (this is a desperate attempt to get some good karma!)

Drop me a PM if you like
