    11*-13* Carbon Flat bars- suggestions?

    I have been riding Salsa Pro Moto Carbon Flat bars for a couple of years and love them- building up a new (to me) SS and went looking for a new pair of these bad boys and it appears that they're not available anywhere. What gives?

    Other/ Similar suggestions?

    Are you sure about that? - Universal Cycles -- Salsa Pro Moto 1 Flat Bar

    Not carbon, but Seven Cycles will make you a custom ti flat bar and you get to pick the width and sweep and you want.

    Besides the Salsa, the Bontrager Race X-Lite OS Carbon is 12 degree bend and 660mm wide. MSRP is $99.99 at your Trek LBS.

    On the Universal Cycles one- I guess they changed the name to the Pro Moto 1. Funny, cuz if you go to Universal Cycles' website and just type in Salsa Pro Moto carbon- until yesterday, it would bring you to the page for the regular pro moto (I guess the older version- which I've been riding) and it was out of stock. As I write this, I checked and they are now IN STOCK this morning- sweet- because they're only $93 vs the $140 for the Pro Moto 1. Done!

    The Bontrager bar- I called several Trek dealerships and none had it in stock and each said they COULD order it- however, if you try to buy it from the Bontrager site, it says they're out of stock, so I don't think a dealership can get it either.

    The Niner Flat Top is a 9 degree sweep. I like something a little bigger- I was riding a 17 for a while on my SS, but have been riding the 11 on my FS rig and I think I like it better.

    Anyway- thanks for the input- with the update to UC's site, I'm all set

    3T Extendo Pro or LTD. 12deg sweep, 3mm offset rearward, 740mm wide. You choose the width from there.

    Have it on my SS and my Pugs. Favorite bar ever.

    Enve (Formerly Edge Composites). I have run Salsa Promoto's for years, the Enve is a much better bar for overall ride quality.
