Handlebar Sizing between brands

Postby mattbell » Fri Feb 22, 2013 18:54 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is much difference between 3T and Bontrager handlebar sizing. i.e will my 42cm 3Ts be the same width as a pair of Bontrager ones?

Thanks

Matt

Some quote centre to centre and others quote outside to outside, so you need to clarify.
Yellow is the new Black.

I've been doing some research into new bars as well. Some have flare so they are not the same width on the hoods as they are in the drops. The 3T Ergonova does this from what I've read. Just another consideration...

I'm pretty sure 3T are c-c measurement. I'm not sure about Bontrager.
