I am always amazed with people participating in this forum and
still buying Deda.


I am always amazed at people buying Chinese bars/stems branded 'FSA' or 'Zipp' and thinking they have actually got something made in the US. Not that there is anything wrong with Chinese stuff.

Well I'm glad I stumbled upon this thread as I was considering this bar. It's a bit sad that all handlebars are black these days. I'm after a classic silver bar for a Titanium bike. Ritchey make their classic in silver, but that's about it.


This should go pretty well with a Ti bike.

No way is that bar 426g. I have a Deda Speciale in 26mm clamp and its 292g.
I also have a Cinelli Vai Palm bar which is 341g.
The Cinelli is the heaviest bar i have seen, judging but the listings on here. But i love the shape and its cheap.


I can believe that.

I bought a Cinelli Bianca bar a while back. Forget exactly, but the sucker weighed around 350-380 gms and it wasn't even one of these integrated stem pieces. I dunno what kind of aluminum Cinelli and Deda use :noidea:. Or blame it on the thick white paint.

Only reason I kept the bar is it will go on my trainer bike :twinkle:.

Sorry to bring this up from the dead but I've been researching 26.0 bars this spring for a classic steel build and info was few and far between on the Deda Speciale 26.

Like fletch62's mine came in under the actual claimed weight (320g) which is hard to believe. My size 42cm weigh 287g. I just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone that might looking at 26.0 bars in the future. Also Deda measures Outside to Outside, not Center Center as I had wrongly assumed.

26.0 silver bars:

Soma Hwy 1 (315 actual)
Civia Emerson (never wrote the weight down, but it was high 200s ~300gm if I recall).

Very similar in shape to each other, a variable curve type, not really classic like the Deda bars. Similar reach and drop, almost identical. The Civia were a couple cm shorter at the ends, which might be why they're a little lighter. I liked the Hwy1 because I like to hold on to the very ends of the drops sometimes and they just felt a little more secure.
