Who would be interested in a set (or 3) of WTB type drop bars?
I am going to talk to the Marketing Director in a few days time so I want an idea of how many would be snapped up.

I will also post this on the singlespeed and 29'er forums, please don't respond to both!

Cheers

If you are talking about those bars that flare out in the drops for a wider grip then yes, I am interested in them. Generally though, I'd like a wider handlebar, similar to those used on touring bikes but lighter in weight. I think a wider grip anywhere on the handlebar would make me feel less wobbly and more confident when I hit uneven terrain. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate them. I really want the width of a straightbar, but also the multiple hand positions and aerodynamics of the dropbars. Is this a stupid request?
