There are two different Grand Randonneur Shapes, B132 and B135. Some catalogs will call this shape the Grand Randonneur and the B135's the Randonneur. Since both bars have Grand Randonneur stamped on them we are opting to differentiate by B132 and B135. The difference between the two is in the drop and the reach (the B132 is narrower drop but has a longer reach)
The ends of the bars extend toward the rider, allowing a very comfortable ride in the drops without reaching. The upswept flats make for a nice hand position on tops.
Bar size is a measurement from center to center of the open ends of the bar. Because The Grand Randonneur bars flare out from where the brake levers will go to the ends of the drops, the width of the bars "on the hoods" is about 6 cm narrower than the nominal width, or the width at the drops.
Confusing? Call or email if you have questions on which bar to order.
