    Ti color handlebars (but not made of ti)

    Sorry, I had no idea where to post this but decided the 29er forum would be best with all the Ti bikes and (what appears to be) the interest in color matching bike parts seen so often on 29ers.

    Anyway... Im looking for some flat bars made from alu to match a ti seatpost. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help.
    PS: Not going for real ti bars as I cant justify the cost to myself.

    Check out Answer's bars (Pro Taper)

    not a flat bar, but I didn't look too hard. They usually have a bunch of colors to choose from and you could probably find one to match

    Otherwise, I want one of these

    Not flat bars, but check out the Sunline V-1 bars. Made for downhill, they have a super-low rise (15mm I think), and are over 700mm wide. You can chop them down of course. Nice and light, with a cool Ti-esque color.

    i had sunline V1 and they look great on a Ti frame (where i ran them). They are NOT light, I weighed em, wouldnt call em heavy but do not assume they will be "light".

    They make 4 combinations accomodating 2 different rises (19mm or 38mm) with 2 different lengths (711mm and 745mm)

    Nah, just suck it up and pick up some custom Ti bars. I have a box full of carbon and aluminum bars I don't use anymore (for different reasons) which add up to the cost of x3 pairs of full custom Ti bars. If you do pick up a pair of Ti bars, you will be faced with the much larger problem justifiying the cost of a stem that matches your post and bars! Ti stems ARE brutally expensive!

    here's an option

    I found these guys on ebay the other day. They make their own bars in the U.S., so hopefully no chinese crap Ti. Pretty good price and custom lengths and bends.
