We call this the Milan bar because it's a great bar for converting an old Italian racing frame with a short top tube. Actually, it's great for converting any frame with a short top tube into a city bike. Folks who like a more aggressive position on a city bike will like it, too.

The width is about 57cm and reach is 11cm; there is around 25mm (one inch) of rise. The grips sweep back about 35 degrees, and the grip area is about 17cm long. The bulge is 25.4mm. The material is polished aluminum alloy.

Milan bars work with regular MTB (22.2mm) grips, brakes, shifters, 22.2 inverse brake levers, etc., but not bar-ends.

excellent handlebars

I converted an old Trek 520 with these, new levers and shifters from Velo Orange and all are working out very well. The bars are shorter than I envisioned (of course I didn't look at the details on the size) but work great -- as do the levers and shifters. And very reasonable prices all around.

Milan Handlebar

The perfect bar for aggressive urban riding

While most people take backswept bars as suited to upright relaxed riding, I use these to do just the opposite - I find the narrower, angled bars perfect for crouching low and strong, like an upside down shoulder width bench press, making vigorous out of saddle pedaling easy. Oddly, after just setting up, I had to raise my saddle considerably, on an urban style bike. Just make sure you have grips with a nice palm rest.

The Postino is also great, I just find that the Milan gives you more options since you can flip it for positive or negative rise.

Perfect amount of sweep

I replaced the straight bars on my old Trek 950, and it does make a world of difference. The sweep helps compensate for the long stem, which I kept on there. Now my sitting position is less aggressive and more comfortable.

Quality is exceptional, and the price was great. Love my shiny new bars!

Love them!

I have had these bars on various commuters for more than a decade now, and just love them. I recently swapped them out for the Curvy Bar, which has a similar bend but is slightly wider. These, however, will definitely find a home on another bike.
