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.

I bought the Milan handlebar to replace the original straight bars on an old MTB being converted to a city/commuter bike. The sweep feels much better on my wrists and arms, especially on longer rides. They also dropped about 50mm off the reach, which is exactly what I was looking for. The trade-off is a little less leverage and control authority. To top it off, these bars give my bike a bit of dapper flair!
Love the bend, aesthetics and quality but wish they were wider.
Great product, great size and shipped quickly :)
