Hi guys,

I'm looking for a new handlebar to replace my current bars (3T Ergonova in aluminum). These came stock on my bike, but I don't like the drops as I feel like the bottom end of the drops is too steep. I wish the bottom of the drop was flatter or more parallel to the ground. What I do like about these 3T bars is the nice big chunky tops. They are fairly wide and oval shape which makes the tops really comfortable when climbing.

I really like the look for the Enve road bars, but these are round on the tops. Does anyone know of a good compact bar that's more ergo or flat on the tops? I'm more of a sprinter build, so I'm looking for something that is sturdy, but also hoping to save some weight if I can.

Thanks!

I've been happy with the Williams carbon bars. Compact, flattish top, 192 grams, low price, plenty stiff for me (but I'm not a heavy power guy).

I just got a Deda Zero 100 bar that is pretty compact and the top I'd describe as "ovalish". I haven't mounted them yet but I think I'm going to like them.

I've been using the Enve compact bars since they came out and really like them. They are more oval than round, as there are channels for cable routing underneath. They are not as wide as the Ergonova, but once you tape them up, they have enough "girth" for me and the tops are slightly angled if you have the drops horizontal, but the wrist position feels natural to me.

Good luck.

I have the Pro Vibe Aero Carbon Bars- Flat on top (obviously) and a compact bend. I really like them.

Ax Lightness 4200 fits the bill. Internal routing too if that's your thing.

+1

half the peloton seem to be on the FSA Energy Compact alloy or K Force carbon.

Great bar, great bend, flat/oval tops, drops are nice and long for more hand positions.

I really like the looks of the Ritchey WCS Stream II bar. Looks like the reach is 70mm vs my current bars at 77mm. I'm riding a 110mm stem. Do you think I should also fiddle with my stem length (120)? I'd like to keep my fit as unchanged as possible.
