Specialized bars, the one that were mounted on rockcombos, very similar to Jackie Phelan's WTBs. A LBS in my town has tons of them....


Any chance this shop has a website? Would be interested in picking up a pair :wink:

Does the riding position mean no need for a granny ring?

The riding position does lend itself to climbing - more weight over front wheel and also the leverage of riding 'on the hoods'. However the l/h Dura-ace STi will only accommodate a double chainset - one the reasons why I may change to a bar-end shifter.

Although I rarely use the granny ring anyways :wink:

No it doesn't. I mihght grab a pair 4 you. the bars are very cheap (about 15-20 euros NOS) , but shipping costs from Italy are ridiculous: I've been asked 35 Euros for sending a stem to the UK, which is the double of what I paid to have my slingshot frame sent from Germany.

Mate that would be really cool if you could.. :D

Could you see how much the postage to the UK would be?

Kev, how were those combo-shifters off road?

Just had the site calculate the shipping cost: it would be 33 EUro plus 6 for insurance (not obligatory). Which, i think, is going to be about the double of what you would pay for the bars

OOOPS Kingroon: I didn't notice you are from Australia... Should I tell you the price? OK, just to have a laugh....: it's 41+6
