    Technically, yes. Here's the rundown.

    Original WTB drop bars - made by Nitto for Specialized for WTB. Way back in the day.

    Ibis drop bars - made by Nitto for Specialized for Ibis. When sold new had a small "Specialized" sticker. Again made back in the 80s.

    Specialized RockCombo bar - this time a specific Specialized designed bar - not quite a flared as the WTB bar but with a wider top section. Made fairly exclusively for Specialized's RockCombo model a 26" wheel mountain bike with drop bars. Had a fairly low bb height.

    Original "Dirt Drop" bar was made by Nitto for Bridgestone. Bridgestone spec'd it on their MB-1 in 1987 (?).

    Do a search for all of these bars on the vintage, retro, classic site and you'll find a bunch of info (probably a search on the 29er and ss sites would also yield info as well).
