All Products, Components, PartsA simple and affordable short reach and shallow drop handlebar that fits bar-end shifters. The center section is highly polished, while the area under the bar tape has a "sandblasted" finish. Specs: Stem Clamp: 26.0mm Grip: 23.8mm Drop: 120mm Reach: 75mm Flare: 0 Weight: 395g (44cm size) Sizes (C-to-C at ends): 40, 42, 44, 46cm We suggest going with a stem that uses removable style faceplate, as it could be very difficult to maneuver a non-removeable clamp around the bends.$95.00$95.00
All Products, Components, PartsWith comfortable fit characteristics such as shorter reach, shallow drop, and a mellow backsweep, the Nouveau Randonneur Handlebar is optimally designed for long days and nights for riders using integrated shifters and aero brake levers. The tops are ovalized and swept back ever so slightly from the stem clamp. This makes for a bigger area upon which your hands can rest. A wider palm base means road vibrations and impacts are distributed better and not centralized into a specific spot effectively reducing hand, wrist, and elbow fatigue. Additionally, the sweep lends itself better (than a straight top) to your hands' natural resting position. The ramps are 105mm in length (measured from the center of the bend to the edge of the ramp). This gives enough real estate for a full hand's worth of a position behind the hood for cruising, but short enough to easily reach the hood for shifting, braking, and out of the saddle efforts. Measuring traditionally (from the center of the stem clamp to the furthest edge of the brake lever hood mount) the reach is 85mm. The 128mm worth of drop is casual and the 12 degree worth of flare makes for terrific cornering stability and prevents your forearms from hitting the bars during punchy efforts or obstacle negotiation. The Nouveau Randonneur Bar is available in three sizes (measured center to center at the hood): 42, 44, and 46cm, two finishes: High-Polished Silver and Smooth Noir, and accepts standard road components such as integrated shifters, aero brake levers, and bar-end shifters.$129.00$129.00

Just like on an old fishing pole, these are natural cork grips. Cork grips absorb shock and don't get slippery. They are nicely shaped to fit your hand and very comfortable. Perfect for your city bike or classy mountain bike. They also look great with shellac! Black grips made of black rubbery foam mixed with cork.
If these or any grips fit too loosely on your bars, put a bit of tape on the bar first. Any tape will do, electrical, duct, athletic, Tressostar. Fits standard 22.2mm (grip area) bars only. Price is per pair.$25.00
These are soft leather with a self-adhesive double-stick tape on the back. They match our elkhide sewn-on handlebar covers and toe clip leathers. They protect your paint from chain slap and give your bike a finished look. In decades past, constructeurs actually brazed on fittings over which a leather strip was stretched. Our elkhide strips are the next best thing. Like all of our elkhide leather goods, they are cut by hand in the US.$20.00
