Does anyone have any first hand knowledge regarding a 3ttt Morphe bar. From web site pictures the hand positions look comfortable, but not being able to see one in person I would like some feedback before considering ordering sight unseen.I would also be ordering the 3ttt Forgie stem; again any feedback would be appreciated.

I have this combination on my Serotta CSI and really like it. After reading about the morphe bar I was interested in trying it -

What do I like about the Morphe bar?
1. The top of the bar is flat and comfortable for long rides.
2. The drops are shallow.
3. The reach to my shifters is comfortable.

my particulars: I'm female, 5'8" and have at least an average hand size for my height (but obviously smaller and narrower than a man's hand size).

Hope this helps.

Ripley; Thank you for your input.
Did you order the bar from a store, catalog or on line?
What stem are you using?
Where did you read about the bar?
Thank you again for the information.

Hi gmagee,

My shop ordered it for me, but I know www.excelsports.com carries them. I'm using them with the 3t Forgie stem.

I read about the bars at http://simon.trinhall.cam.ac.uk/bike/tips.html

Good luck

Ripley
