    Then no bar- Bontrager items can only be had through Trek dealers.

    You may luck out and find a seller on fleabay.

    I was hoping someone could point me to a shop that actually has one.

    Bontrager Availability

    As above, if you're looking for anything that has 'Bontrager' on it, you're walking into a bike shop or looking for a re-seller. I happen to favor the high lever position and curve of the VR bars but am not so hot on a carbon fiber bar w/ an MSRP of 400 clams.

    So I asked my LBS guy of many years (a Trek retailer) for the alloy version of the same bar and he found that while the CF bars aren't that difficult to come by, the only way he could get a couple of the alloy bars was when the buyer of a VR equipped bike requested a bar exchange/upgrade. I've done a lot of business w/ his shop over the years, so he just gave me the bars (Thank you).

    The short answer is that you are looking for a Trek store.

    Airplane Mode is not just for flying... or riding.
