Measuring Handlebar Width?(2 posts)

Measuring Handlebar Width?BigFatSal

When measuring the bars, where's the proper point at which to measure the width? The lower part of my drops is wider than the upper portion.... Hmm... Trying to get accurate measurement so I know what width to order on my new ride.

You measure across the ends of the drops. Then you have to take into concideration the center-center (c-c) or outer edge-outer edge (o-o) measurements that different manufactures use. TTT uses o-o so you order one size bigger, but most others use c-c.
