Has anyone seen the new Deda handlebars with the aero extens(10 posts)

Has anyone seen the new Deda handlebars with the aero extensol

I saw a picture of them in cyclenews, they are a standard road handlebar with a slight extension in the middle so you can get really aero when you grip them. I was just wandering are they a prototype or they destined for commercial use, and would they be legal in a mass start event?

The bar you were looking at is called the deda "synapsis". i e-mailed deda & here is the scoop. some of there better dealers will have them by mid october & more in november. the weight will be around 350 grams . i will be picking up a set of the 90 / 42 bars.he could not give me a price.there is a ton of different size bars that will come out. the only thing i don't know is if they will have a computer mount like my cinelli rams.the october 2002 issue of "cycle sport"magazine has a full color ad on the inside back cover for them.
How much? How much? (nm)Iwannapodiumgirl

CC (among others) have the Chronometro Nob Computer mount that attaches to the stem....
Dang that's cool! But one thing that'd be even cooler...OffTheBack

... is if they built a cyclocomputer right inside the bar, and had the diplay flush in the flat top section! How cool would that be?
Then you wouldn't be able to wrap your fingers around the gripsfbg111

better to have the computer flush in the bottom section, I think.

Actually, that center section up front is intended to provide a mounting place for the computer.

i X-pensive,
no doubt about it....
Wouldn't you want forearm pads with that aero extension?fbg111

I'm trying to imagine how you would ride in the aero position on that bar, and I guess you could do it, but I don't think it would be very comfortable for long distances.
Uncomfortable Aero, but more like a climbing position. nmSpunout
