Does anyone make true randonneur drop handlebars anymore? I mean the kind that curved upwards
slightly before curving forwards.

How about quality box-channel rims (inside center groove), 700c, 19-23mm width, offset spoke holes
(36), w/reinforcing grommets? IOW, lightweight touring rims.

Thanks.

May you have the wind at your back. And a really low gear for the hills! Chris

Do bogtrader own a patent on offset spoke holes? They dont seam to do road rims in 36h.

I think I know what you want, basically MA2's with offset spoke holes?

Yep, we stock 3 different versions.

The coolest just arrived yesterday, GB bars from Britain, the widest=20 randonneurs I've ever seen.

We've also got the Nitto 135 and a Belleri model.

The Belleri is 25 mm clamp diameter (French size) but the other two are=20 ISO standard 1 inch (25.4
mm) clamp size.

We got 30 of 'em, I bought 2 for myself, (one for my Hetchins, one for=20 my Rambouillet) so there
are 28 still available.

Nitto does, or at least did until very recently. Any bike shop should be able to order them through
Euro-Asia, I would think.

Modolo GranFondo Five-stars comfort introduced in 1998: higher raise for "Gran Fondo" allowes a very
comfortable rest-giving position, that is extremely appreciated especially in the long distance
races and a very short shape "Venus" than decrease to 12 mm. the brake-lever distance. Very
confortable for kids and women. http://www.modolo.com/

By offset, I'm not referring to that new design intended to reduce dish. I mean the holes for the
left side spokes are a little to the left of center, the holes for the right hand spokes, a little
to the right of center.
