Hey Guys
I ordered some bars from bike24 and now they have been delayed til March 2019. I’ve cancelled the order and in search of new bars. The problem is I’m looking for 36cm bars, preferably aero at the tops. The bars I ordered are Profile Design DRV/AEROa 105 Road Handlebar - 31.8; Width: 36 cm. Alloy or Carbon, preferably cheaper.
Any Suggestions?

36cm c-c or end-end? What sort of drop and reach? Shape of drop?

38cm FSA bars are 36 at the levers because flare. IIRC they have an aero model too.

I looked up the current K-Wing AGX and it doesn’t seem to come in <40cm.

Wildcard option is the 40cm ENVE SES Aero because it’s 35cm at the levers/hoods.

looking for c-c and longer reach and any shape drop. Don’t want huge amounts of flair either

Well there’s plenty of 36cm bars with round tops and no flare available, in alloy and carbon. The aero/wing tops preference is the sticky point.

Here’s one example:

I designed the PD bars, so I really think you should wait... ;-)
Problem is that the distributors in Europe didn't see the need for 36cm, have confirmed that this will be sorted Q2 2019

No aero tops but fairly cheap and light (240g - ish) is the Deda Zero100 alloy bar.
The 38cm is 36 c-c. Like all Deda bars they're measured o-o. Close to no flare at the bottom.
