Hi can anybody tell me were shimano measure their Pro Vibe Handlebars ie. c-c on the tops or c-c at end of handlebars. I have the opportunity to purchase the above bars which are advertised as 40cm. I currently have FSA bars which are sold as 40cm but are in fact 38cm c-c at the hoods. Idealy this is the size i want. Its a pity manufacturers dont standardise their measurements, it would make life a little less complicated!! Thanks.

There is no flare to these bars, so the measurements apply to the tops or end of the handlebars. I have verified the measurements on my 42cm bars, so the 40cm should be 40cm at the hoods and at the end of the drops.
