For my singlespeed I was thinking of ordering a custom Seven bar with some bend, but curious about which I should get.

Anybody have some pictures of a flat bar with 12° or similar bend? (prefer pics from top, so I can see a good angle)...

Thanks...

Thanks all...!!!

Those Syntaces are pretty nice... 16°...

Does anyone make a higher end bar with that much bend? Like maybe a carbon or a ti?

(looking for a similar thing to a Jones, but able to run Rohloff grippy) Don't particularly want the Maryss...

syntace makes a really sweet carbon one

It has 9 degrees of backsweep, and it's got this titanium mesh woven into it. But, it is XC narrow, only 580mm

Why cant you run the rohloff on the jones? I believe Ive seen it done before.

You can, but it's not ideal... The shifter is sorta far away from hand regular hand positions.

However... I think there is a way...

I'll spend the $60 more for a Jones... :D

Im willing to bet that those Koski bars are quite narrow. They look like old WTB bars that were roughly 23". Sweet bars, I just wish more companies made wide, flat bars. What is it w/this narrow crap???

I'm not going to bet with you, martini. The WTBs were made by Koski.

And your estimate is close enough--24".

24 works well in the Midwest.

11 degrees, flat bar, 660mm wide. Aluminum. Salsa Pro Moto.

Disregard shifter thingies.

Please post a pic of those seven bars when you get 'em. I'm interested as well. These aluminum bars are beating the crap out of my right hand.

Edit....I meant right hand.

Why not your right? Is it detachable, like a penis?
Well, it could be that being a single guy and err... ahhh...nevermind.

Seriously, I don't know? For the last few weeks, a few minutes on the bike and my fingers go numb. But, it's only my right hand. I think the combination pounding of the front brake and shifting is taking it's toll on my right hand. I'm kinda freaking out about it really.
I've been working a throttle, front brake, or shifters since I was 12. I think I've worn me fooking hand out.

I'm definetly going to try the Ti bars out.
