Alternative to Deda Piega bars

Postby Dynamite_funk » 9 Oct 2020, 3:00pm

Howdy everyone, I'm looking for a pair of bars that have the same short reach as these but in silver. Must be 26.0-26.4mm...

Any ideas? Ideally with double cable grooves to facilitate 9 speed Campagnolo ergo levers.

I'm not too sure about the short reach requirement, but I went from an RHM01 to a Speciale without too much trouble. http://www.dedaelementi.com/en/speciale-26/

My Moulton TSR came with those.
One, they were ukky black, and two, they were too wide .......... so I sold them.

I bought Deda Speciale in silver and 42mm wide.
Same diameter as the Piega.
The Deda pages don't list their widths.
Bought mine from Spa ......... who do.

I happily went from Deda RHM to FSA Compact.

Note how manufacturers have different ways of measuring/denoting width.
I should coco.

The only other silver compact shape bars with 26.0 clamp that I’m aware of are SOMA Highway 1.

There’s supposedly some compact Nitto bars with a 26.0 clamp but I’ve never come across them in the flesh in the UK.

Nitto M106 might do it for you, Here at Planet X but sold out...
Big wheels good, small wheels better.
Two saddles best!

True, but basically only two ways.
Centre-to-centre, or outside-to-outside.

My Cinneli 64-40 on Mercian measure centre-to-centre 40cm, but outside-to-outside are 42cm ............ and my Deda were bought for Moulton as listed at 42mm outside-to-outside. Consequently, they are both the same size. Also both the same shape.

When you get to flared drops, they probably list them as outside-to-outside at their widest part.
