    Riv = 57 bucks for non-member, 52 member
    AE Bike = 48 buck

    If you aren't a Riv member aebike.com is cheaper.

    This is probably true, but please consider this: Grant Peterson of Rivendell designed these bars when working at Bridgestone in the early 90s. They wouldn't be avaible anywhere otherwise. By supporting Rivendell you are supporting a passionate bunch of cyclists who are keeping it real. You should consider joining for $20. You get a $10 credit and some great reading material...

    YMMV,

    While I give Grant credit for popularizing the Moustache bar, I think he'll also agree that the basic design is from the early 1900's and he just refined them. Check out the design in the upper left from 1907.

    Grant was influenced by previous designs, but you still probably wouldn't be able to get the m-bar now if not for him...
