Bar with short reach question..(4 posts)

Bar with short reach question..CA
May 30, 2001 8:27 AM
Anyone know of a good bar with a short reach to the brake hoods. The reason I ask is that I am very comfortable on the tops so I don't want to go with a shorter stem. I have small hands so a shallow drop would not be a problem but I do need a 44 for my shoulders.
I have a TTT (Forgie?) on the bike right now.

I know I should post this on the component board but I'm hoping to get more responces here.

I think Salsa makes several short reach ergo bars.

Salsa Poco bar. Has a reach of 70mm, and a 140mm drop.
Comes in 36-44cm center to center width.
Comes in silver or black.
The bar has a single cable groove.
I ordered the bar from lbs for the same reason as you described and have been more comfortable since.

Good luck hope you find what you need to be comfortable.
Thanks for the info...CA
