Narrow deep track handlebars

Posted on
  • Does anyone know any handlebars for track use that are 36cm wide or less and are 140mm deep or more?
    I am struggling to find any.
    Thanks

  • There maybe something vintage around those numbers but I don't think there's anything modern. Have you considered the Alpina bars?

    or there's the Cinelli pista bars but they only go down to 40cm.
    Failing that, maybe narrow compacts and a negative rise stem?

  • Nitto B123 are 170 drop and come in 34cm wide or more but you'll need a 25.4 stem or shim to 26mm.
    If you can't find any in the UK ATM ( I could only find 38cm or greater with a quick look) then you might have to get direct from njs export

  • Expensive, but if that is no issue (and you can find them) you can get these in 37cm and 148mm drop:

  • There are plenty of Chinese 3t Scatto-alikes on the market at places like AliExpress. Same dims - 89mm reach, 148mm drop (for 36cm only, mind - narrower and that drop goes to 120mm). I got a second hand set for £50. Decent bars and really stiff.

    Other than that, you're looking at Alpinas. They pop up regularly on the Facebook track classifieds group around the £100 mark.

    If you don't mind a shim, I've got a set of 36cm Nitto B125s you can have (150mm drop)? Shim's superglued on and other than that they're only used once.
