Center to center?(3 posts)

Center to center?revdre

I am looking for a wider set of handlebars and have a simple question. How much bigger are bars that are measured center to center than ones that are measured outside to outside? I am looking at the Ritchey Pro ergo bends that are 44 C to C and I currently have Zoom 44 O to O. Are the Ritchey's comparable to a set of 46 cm O to O?
Thanks for the help.
44 c to c is the same as 46 o to o. nmDave Hickey

Two cm. difference between C-C and O-ONessism

Also, don't forget that the reach of the various handlebars on the market vary a fair bit. For example, the reach on Ritchey's anatomic bend bars is longer than 3T's but shorter than Deda and ITM. Something to think about.
