Handlebar width question(1 post)

Handlebar width questionHoward
Mar 6, 2001 6:16 AM
Using the standard 'measure your shoulders side-to-side by the bony protusions at the edges of your shoulders' method for handlebar width, once you have this number (call it "AA" for simplicity)

how does AA translate into a handlebar size for those handlebars that FLARE out (the distance between drops is greater than the distance between brake hoods)at the drops?

In other words, should the AA number be geared to the distance between the drops or should AA be geared to the distance between the brake hoods?

Thank you.
