... What options do I have? Here's my list of requirements:

- Flat bar preferred (although will consider risers at a pinch).
- Nice shiny silver alloy (Not black).
- 25.4mm clamp.
- Reasonably wide (620mm or wider, none of this 580mm XC racer nonsense).

Moon on a stick? Can't seem to find anything.

I'm kinda looking for the same thing, prefer risers, could do flat bars

It's quite hard finding nice quality light silver bars

I've not found any really nice ones

OnOne do a range of bars and you can get them in silver and 25.4mm clamp

http://www.on-one.co.uk/c/q/bars-and-grips

The only silver 25.4mm clamp flat bars are the Tioga's near the bottom of the page, but they're 560mm wide

I'm considering getting some of the Fleegle bars in silver, but they're 130g heavier than the X-lite's that I borrowed from the Orange for the Marin

Deffo moon on a stick with a cherry on top :(

Cheers Andy, aye I was looking at the fleegle's earlier, they're on the (very so far) short list.

I wish Salsa did a version of their Pro Moto or Moto Ace in bare alloy :evil:

Aye, there's a couple of Azonics risers on the 'bay right now that'd do at a pinch - would probably polish up nice and could finish off with some new repro decals.

Ritchey Classic stuff is nice, they do them in 100mm to long length at 660mm as well according to CRC

Problem might be the OS clamp

Cheers K, I always forget about Surly stuff for some reason (probably the price).

Fluffy - The Ritchey Classic stuff looks spot on, but it all seems O/S now.
