Alternative to Cinelli 64 ?(7 posts)

Alternative to Cinelli 64 ?desmo

Everytime I ride my vintage fixie or 70's era Italvega I come away wishing I could find a modern, wide, readily available alternative to those sweet Cinelli Mod 64's for my modern racing bike. I've given up on finding an NOS pair as even the late logo double grooved (which I want) have all seemed to have dissappeared except in 38 widths. I don't want to use used bars on my race bike and would like to find a bar that I can actually replace from time to time for saftey, etc. Anyone riding any bends out there that are the same or close?

Check Harris Cyclery or others for Nitto bars; I think they may make what you're looking for.

3TTT Ergopower 2 shallow drop in a 44 width I would sell you for the $50 + shipping that I just paid for them from Europ. They are a standard bend and on par with the Forma SL at 256 grams. I wanted silver and they came in black. I guess most of the new high end production stuff is being made only in black.

If they're prior to the mid 90's, the clamp is going to be 26.4. Unless you willing to use a Cinelli XA,1A, or 1R stem, the bars won't work with new stems.

I'm like you desmo, I really like the Cinelli Giro 64-40 bars. I have them on two bikes. My modern bike is using the Weyless bar. It's close in drop and shape but not exact.

Millenium or 260 in strada bend. Very similar to '64's which I rode from the 74-98. Similar to the Deda 215 shallow strada's. Not easy to find in the States but definitely available. I have the 260 on 3 bikes and the Millenium on one.
Thanks all...desmo

I ordered a pair of the Deda 215 shallow non anatomic. The only one of those suggested that I could track down easily. It's a start.
