Whisky No.7 12F Drop Bar Silver Road Bike Review

Take a look at these beautiful bars:

Whisky No.7 12F Drop Bar Silver

I’m going for a vintage look with my Surly Cross Check build so decided I should go with silver handlebars.  After shopping around at what’s out there I decided the Whisky bars looked best, and they have not disappointed.  The high polished silver has a really good look to it.  Here are some of the specs:

Reach: 68mm

Drop: 115mm

Drop Flare: 12 degrees

Material: Alloy

Clamp diameter: 31.8mm

Bar Width: 38cm (they also make 40, 42, 44, and 46)

Weight: 295 grams

Part Number: HB2690

Whisky calls this their most versatile drop bars and I believe them.  I expect that they are going to be very comfortable.  The 38cm width seems to be spot on.  I wanted to try some flare for comfort, and I think I’m going to like the 12 degrees these have.  Also, my vintage Schwinn Le Tour bars have quite a bit of flare, so it’s playing along with the old school theme of my build.  These are even made in Taiwan, which I think still means higher quality than China.  Whisky also makes these in black if you want a more modern look. 

I’ll add some more images after I get these mounted.
