About to add these to a basket when it occurred to me, every image is of the bars shod on a disk brake bike. As such, anyone aware if the bars can be used with a caliper brake bike with cabling routing running out of the bar rather than on the Sworks stem which is again it seems engineered for the Venge and internal disk cabling etc etc. Thanks in advance.

Yes !! No problem.

I have this handlebar on my tarmac sl6 rim brake and no issue. I routed the brake and di2 cables inside and they go out next to the stem.

(Look this picutre on instagram ;) )

Hi r3m

Thanks for that picture.. I've been wanting another Handlebar for my sl6 disc.. Don't really like the stock bars. The bump at the top bend isn't for my hands... Does this bar have it?

Thinking lightweight or aero.. But cable routing is important too.
This looks really good on the cable routing front.. Will be interested even with a weight penalty on something like a darimo or 3t superergo Ltd.

Can you measure the part beside the stem and start of the flat section? Will need to fit an Oi bell.

Thanks

Sorry for the confusion. Hope my doddle makes it better.

Red bit is where I have issues with my hands..

Blue bit is where I would like to get the width. Image

Ohhh Ok ! :)

No bump in the red zone and the blue zone mesured between 1cm and 3.5cm (with classic sworks stem).

Thanks.. When you say 1 cm to 3.5cm..the clamp area is not consistent next to the stem clamp? Yes also have the Sworks stem.

Ahh pictures solves the problem.. Lol
Thanks.. Need that 1cm area to be 1.5cm for the bell.

Yes, I'm in draconian must have bell or get fined by police land.

So with this bar.. Will need to but bar off centre.. Don't think my ocd can handle that.

Easy solution is to sand/grind down the bell clamp strap so it's narrow enough to fit in the 1cm space. I had to do this on my computer mount using Aerofly bars as well. The computer mount was plastic so was very easy to take material off.

Australia

If not for the car focused culture, crazy drivers and nanny state government.. Would be a cycling paradise.
