I'm looking for new handlebars for one of my bikes. My fixed gear has a Nitto 177 (noodle bar) and Nitto Dynamic stem that look great together and I really like the Nitto 177.
The bike for which I want new bars is a a 2004 Cannondale R400 with a black stem and 26mm clamp. The Nitto would look out of place on this bike, so I'm looking for alloy bars without an anatomic bend. I hate the anatomic bars that came on the Cannondale when I bought it years ago (Cinelli Altera) and prefer the bend on the Nitto.
The only thing I've seen so far that looks similar and is made for 26mm clamp is the Deda 215. Is there anything else I'm missing?
For reference, the Nitto 177 is 140mm drop and 90mm reach while the shallow Deda 215 is 135mm drop and 80mm reach. The geometry on the two bikes is quite different so I think the shorter drop and reach would probably be okay on the Cannondale.
The Deda site says the 215 is also available in a "deep" version but I can't find anywhere with the specifications for that one.
