    Wiped Out on 2011 Fuji Roubaix

    Just recently wiped out on Fuji Roubaix 61cm. I was going downhill and a guy decided to cut me off in his car and park on the bike lane in front of me. I tried to go around and front wheel got caught on the trolley tracks in philly and went down with the bike. My front handle bar is bent from the impact and wondering what handle bar I should upgrade to for my bike.

    I would take the opportunity to upgrade to a bar of your choosing. What is your preference? Shallow? Compact? Ergo?

    I like the one currently on the bike. It has the right size feel just wondering if there is any better upgrades since I have to change the handle bar.

    I'd just get your LBS to order you are replacement. When you find a bar you like, I'd stick with it.....bars are like saddles.

    This is my first bike so I really haven't tried other bars yet.

    Your best bet would be to take it in to your local bike shop and get them to order a new bar.....or they may have something in stock.

    I upgraded my bar recently so I can sell you mine for cheap if you wanted but I ride a 54 so I think it'll be too small if you ride a 61.

    It's a great bike. It is my first road bike easy to ride long distances on.
