Dear Forum Members,

I am restoring a late 80(s) or early 90(s) Ritchey Mountain Bike. The bike I own looks identical to the bike TR is riding on front cover of 1989 Ritchey Components Catalog. The original Ritchey 'Force' handlebars are a bit heavy and I need a recommendation for an upgrade. I am using a SoftRide Suspension System, so the new handlebars that I get will need to be compatible.

I am seeing ProLite and ForceLite handlebars in 1991 catalog. Anybody out there have some good advice on an upgrade and shop where I can find NOS Ritchey Handlebars.

Please help!
