    Comparable handlebar to Sunline V1

    Hi guys.

    It seems that my favourite handlebar has now ended production. Does anyone know of any bars with similar metrics (ie width, sweep, etc) to the Sunline V1 OS? Preferably flat, but minimal rise would be ok too.

    Thanks in advance
    Shalom

    I went with a raceface atlas and trimmed it down. no problems coming from my uncut v-one bars.

    edit: the lowrise ones:

    the new easton havoc 35 is awesome. i love mine and it has made a huge difference in stiffness on the bike. if not i am sure easton has a bar that will fit your liking

    Thanks mzorich. Currently looking at some of Chromag's offerings. Not sure I can be bothered replacing a perfectly good stem when I just need a bar. I will definitely keep them in mind though for the next bike!

    i actually have a chromag osx bar on my dh bike. its a good bar and have no complaints about it. you might actually be able to pick up a 2012 easton havoc carbon bar ( 31.8) for pretty cheap right now since they moved up to the 35 this year. also another great carbon bar is the answer pro taper. never actually used one but i know a lot of people in the AM community love them. how wide do you want your bars to be cuz that can limit your bar size if you where to go carbon or not?
