    Handlebar - any recommendations?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi -

    I am in search of "a good handlebar" for my x bike. The drop and the reach of my current one is kind of too much (140mm drop and 80mm reach). I am looking for a handlebar with a shorter reach and drop. I like the shape of Ritchy WCS Road Bar but it does not come with any smaller size... FSA Wing Pro comes with a shallow drop but its reach is the same as the current... I can adjust the reach by changing the stem length but I do not want to change the stem at this point.

    Any recommendations?

    Salsa Short and Shallow and Salsa Poco feel a lot like the Ritchey, but with less reach and drop.

    I have Short and Shallows on my Waterford X-12, and really like them.

    Pocos have even less drop and reach.

    Hi KnottedYet

    Thanks so much for your recommendation!

    I looked at the spec of those and Salsa S&S is pretty much the same as the current and Poco does not come with 31.8mm (OS)....

    Still looking!
