Take a look at these beautiful bars:
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:
Drop Flare: 12 degrees
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.
