These are a similar bend to the Cinelli Pope/Priest bars with some slight tweaks to make them more practical. Grip area is longer to accomodate standard grips and brake levers. Forward reach is increased to reduce the change in cockpit length. Designed by Joseph Ahearne and MAP Bikes.
The Bike Hermit used these bars on "Norm" his commuter bike. They have a classic appearance as well as a comfortable grip angle.
Two Sizes - while the bars are stamped 570 and 610, Ahearne notes them at 575mm and 615mm (just to keep us all guessing)
The 610/615mm is longer in the grip area and wider than the 570/575mm. If you are in doubt, get the longer as they can be cut.
- Width: 570mm OR 610mm
- Backsweep: 41 degrees
- Center: 25.4mm (order the shim if you have a 26 stem)
- Finish: Polished anodized silver or Polished Black
