|Who makes bars with the widest tops? I like the Bontragers, but I assume it's mtb clamp size means my top levers (pauls) aren't going to fit.
Profile used to make 46 cm bars measured center-to-center, but no more. Any help would be appreciated as my Knobby X is on the way.

|48's, a few companies make them (Salsa, Syncros, ITM I think) One company makes top mounts for bigger bulge handlebars. go to cyclocrossworld.com I think it's IRD|

|I run Bontrager CX bars (46cm). They do take a 25.4 MTB stem, but I believe that the rest of the bar is normal road diameter. I use Tektro topmounts with no problem.
Most road bars are 15/16", despite stembulge size.
Most MTB bars are 7/8", despite stembulge size.

|I really, really like them. They're sold by Nashbar and made from 7075 aluminum and are the standard road diameter (26.0mm?). I haven't found bar tape long enough to fully cover them yet. I am using black bar tape with a self-sticking high-voltage black tape (Bishop tape) on the last bit of the ends. I'm going to put some of these on my Jake the Snake (in a 48cm) soon.|
