Whats a better bar? 3TTT vs. Profile...(2 posts)

Whats a better bar? 3TTT vs. Profile...SenorPedro
Dec 16, 2003 3:02 PM
I'm looking at some marked down bars for my fixie project, but really haven't had much experience in the world of roadie bars except for cinelli. Up for comparison is the 3TTT Curva, a basic model with cable grooves and the slightest ergo bend. Or the Profile Hammer DB, double butted tubing with no ergo.

Anyone have any preference towards manufacturers? Know where Profile bars are made?

Thanks a lot

I have the Forgie XL's. I went with them because my hands are fairly wide and the Forgie XL was the only bar I could find that didn't cramp/squeeze my hands when I was in the drops.

The bars are stiff and light enough for the riding I do. I'm 220lbs and am fairly hard on my equipment, and these bars have never disappointed.

I've never ridden the Profile bars.

You might check the Reviews section for comments on handlebars. You might get some good info there.
