    John Tomac Cinelli Drop Bars
    Does anyone know what makes these bars different? From what I've been able to find they have a different bend to them.

    Any details on bend radius/drop/etc.?

    Are you talking about the black bars from Germany (that John actually never used) or the actual bars from his bike?

    They are listed at 46cm

    Any flare?

    No flare that I remember. Felt like 46 inside-inside

    If I recall correctly these also were 25.4 diameter (for MTB stems), whereas standard road drop bars at the time featured 26.0.

    According to this, Cinelli drops. Road bars that were just wider?

    This is what triggered the posting:

    Cinelli Curva John Tomac NOS Handlebar | Planet X

    Price is decent but the shipping is not - $66

    Was thinking maybe a group order to spread shipping cost, but not sure if it's worth it. From what I can tell it's a 46cm Cinelli with "JT" etched in it.

    Darn it, now I want to see the custom XT pedal cages by Tomac and Parker.

    Doc I'm shocked! You don't know what drop bars Tomac ran? I guess the poster of him above your bed has him running flat bars ;)

    I guess I should switch them out on a regular basis ...

    Planet X is currently licensing the Tomac name... Interesting that they bought up those bars.

    Helps the process for people making incorrect drop bar bikes emulating JT!

    You'd need a JT-type bike first, though.
