Hello everyone, iam looking for a new set of alloy bars. the number 2 thing im looking for is a full 31.8 top. the only bar ive seen like that so far is the pro vibe 7s, are there any other similar alloy bars?

Have you ever thought of running double bar tape? Tuis makes the radius of the bar go up and is nice for your hands.

Sent from my HTC. (where has their sponsorship gone?)
'Tape was made to wrap your GF's gifts, NOT hold a freakin tire on.'

Is there a reason you don't simply buy the Pro Vibe 7s bars?

The new Thomson carbon bars have that setup on the top.

Here's a write up on them:

Came across these today - another option maybe? They are alloy, don't know if you'd dig the egro shape though

Oh for Crissakes! If the bar is what you want and it fits all your shape and dimensional requirements, who cares what it says on it.

Afterall, it's not like it says "Campy sucks" on it!! It says "Pro". Isn't that what we all want to be?!?

The new fizik bars seem to be similar to what you're looking for, but it'll be released in a few months.
