Following heckling about the crazy narrowness of my bars I'm keen to try something around the 700mm wide mark with a maximum rise of 10mm.

Cheapish too would be good as they are a bit of an experiment, unless anyone has something really nice on offer.

Many nice things to swap on the offchance that you're too polite to accept payment.

Thanks

Rich

Thanks, but they're narrower than what I've got.

You must be crazy riding anything that dangerously narrow...

Dont believe the hype, i had 540's on one of my bikes then got some 710's and im loathed to cut bars so on they went as 710. Not much different at all. Its all in their heads. You will be on a 29inch wheeled bike before we know it.

That was a joke. Sorry. Nothing wrong with narrower bars - except the fixie lot round our way who keep getting their shoulders wedged in gaps.

They're actually for my 650b. Ha ha. That's not a joke.
