What bars do you use?toonces

I have a 03 Bianchi Pista with the stock bars and I'd like something a wee bit wider like normal road bars, but without the flat parts on the drops. Can anyone point me to a company that makes such bars?

what are you talking about on the drops part....??
are you looking for normal road handlebars except no section that projects back towards you..that is that there is no bar end atfter the drops which is the little section that points towards you.... so after the drops.. thats it...

if thats what your looking for... those are easy to make.. just buy a wider bar in the size that you are looking for and chop off the flat ends with a hack saw... file them smooth afterwards.. to get a clean finish

I suspect you mean you like a full curve in the drop, ie, non ergo /anatomic. Nitto makes several great bars like that (the B123 is a nice one). Most shops that have been around for a bit should have some older stock in the 42 cm range, a popular size when those were in common use. If yo want bigger, the Nittos are a great way to go (strong and not to flexy). Cinelli and Modolo, along with others, made a bunch of styles like that also.

I'm looking for bars without the anatomical bends. But the full bar with drops and all. Does Nitto have a web site?
Ritchey, Salsa, & Deda make non-ergo bars, as do others. (nm)jtferraro
