    Sunline-v1

    31.8 clamp, 19mm or 38mm(1.5 inch) rise options, 711mm(28 inch) or 745mm wide.
    Has the look you wanted too...

    So... Fits the specific numbers you asked for (with option of a wider one if you wanted), has the look... What more could you want?

    That was easy. I've never tried sunline bars but if they weren't so wide I'd get one in a heartbeat, low-rise ofcourse.
    I don't have everything I want.

    But, I want everything I have.

    Yup, I'm running a Sunline V1 lowrise on my IH MKIII. It's perfect! Great bar, it's light, stiff, and cool looking... And it's marked so you can cut it down if it's too long.

    The Sunlines are great.
    I have the carbon version myself.

    Easton Bars are awesome, I have no experience with the Sunline bars but they do look pretty sweet.
    Cheers,

    Seb

    How do you like the carbon bar? I was torn between the aluminum and carbon bar, I settled with the aluminum but I might have to pick up the carbon one and check it out...

    Hacksaw....

    Bars can always be made narrower. you cannot make a bar wider. Wider bars leave no one out.

    Really, thought I had to kanw at them some.. No s#&t you can't make a bar wider! I prolly will eventually get sunlines and have them cut however.

    Thx for the words of wisdom davep.

    Somewhat easy I'll admit, was wondering if this was supposed to be 20 questions for a minute there.


    Sunline bars are nice - the finish really does look good

    Right now im using "Controltech SUP MTB XC Scandium"... 660mm wide, 20mm rise, 6deg sweep... feels really nice (and pretty light too).
    Looks nothing special, but doesnt upset me

    It's a nice bar. Clean looking and no flex as far as I can tell.
