Anyone know of a web retailer who sells WTB Dirtdrop bars? I'm looking for a set of CX bars without much drop.

Nitto does a very simiar bar if you can't find the WTB's - Rivendell and American Cyclery in S.F. both sell the Nitto's - if you find a WTB website/dealer will you please post it here?

The WTB website is:

www.wtb.com

They don't have the dirtdrop bars listed which makes me think they are no longer made. I sent them an email asking if they are still being manufactured.

The nitto bars don't have anything like the flare of the WTB bars. The nitto's are more like the Salsa Bell Laps, but with out the anatomical design. They're also currently only available in an extremely wide size (something like 48cm at the hoods and 52+ at the ends). The WTB bar is about half way between a drop bar and a moustache bar with a huge flare.

Try looking into Bontragers Race lite Cyclocross Bar . It does not have a deep drop , has a 25.4 clamp diameter like the WTB, lighter ,and cheaper. I just put a set on a 2002 Lemond Poprad I finished building on sunday nite. I will say I prefer the flared out drops on the Salsa Bell Lap on my Surly, gives more leverage, but the Bell Lap are 26.0 clamp and can`t be use with a MTB stem if that is what your doing.

Contact WTB through their website. I did earlier in search of the Dirtdrops; and they forwarded to me a web-tailer who is selling the Dirtdrops for around $70.00. Unfortunately, I deleted the e-mail from WTB. But there still out there.
