    3T Rotundo TEAM Carbon bar

    I just got this in today. 42cm 206g.

    Life is too short to use Ergo bars anymore!

    Nice...I'm a long time fan of 3T goodies.

    I just recently put some 3T ergo type bars on my bike. I kinda like it but some manufacturers get a bit extreme being "ergo". ;) Classic bends...

    That's purty. I've used TTT bars and stems before. I liked'em.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I got my Rotundo PRO yesterday too.

    Handlebar: 240 gr for 40 cm bar.

    Stem: 3T ARX PRO stem in 11cm. 134 gr.

    Verdict: love the bend, looks, shape. Hate that it is flexy. I am coming from a Thomson X4/PRO Shallow bar combo which was 65 grams heavier in total but much stiffer.

    This bar feels every bit as stiff as the Syntace Racelite Carbon bars they replaced. I do miss the larger slighty, slighty oval top of the Syntace. They are like 28-30mm.

    I had a very fat cat named Rotundo. Good name for a fat pet, not a good name for a light bar.
    Chances are, I posted this drunk.

    Hi

    In spanish, "rotundo" doesn't mean fat, chubby or bulky at all. It really means more like "emphatic" or "categorical". Being spanish my mother language, the name makes a lot of sense to me.

    Regards

    well I'll be darned. You can buy direct from their website. I was looking for another set of handlebars that wasn't on that site and figured that out.
