About Road Handlebars
Road bars are curved to offer a multitude of positions to suit the terrain. When climbing in the saddle you will often ride on the tops which are the part of the bar either side of the stems clamping point. When out of the saddle on climbs or accelerating you will often ride on the lever hoods mounted at the front of the bars curved section. For higher speeds you will find yourself on the drops, which offer a lower more aerodynamic position. Road bars come in a variety of widths, from 36cm wide up to 44cm, a good guide for bar width is your shoulder width, a bar should not be narrower than your shoulders as this can close up your chest, but they should not be so wide that you are creating a large frontal area. Road handlebars come in two clamp sizes, 31.8mm which is oversized and 26/25.8mm which is standard, it is essential that you get the correct clamp size for your stem as a poor fit will slip round. Road bars also come in different shapes and depths, with various bends for ergonomic reasons, some will also feature grooves in the material for your brake and gear cables to slot into, this helps to keep the bar round once tape is applied. Then there is the all-in-one bar and stem systems from brands such as Cinelli's Ram 2 and the Pro Stealth which offer clean lines and look great with their exposed carbon finish.

Magazine reviews for 3T ErgoNova Team Carbon Road Handlebar
Review from Bikeradar
3T's Ergonova shape is quite possibly our current favourite from any brand. The smoothly flattened top flows into an expanding-radius compact drop that suits hands big or small. The tight transition into the drop offers plenty of wrist clearance, too. We honestly can't think of anything we'd change to improve it.
The combo stem is the all-alloy version of the brilliant carbon Integra. If you're a Garmin user, the combo mount is brilliant, though the stem carries a lot of extra weight compared to the bar.
The smart, hollow construction means you can run cables through the stem and hide a Di2 box within it as well. On the plus side, the boxy construction makes it massively stiff and a good complement to the wonderful bar.
A great bar with a brilliant shape and performance, but the stem adds weight
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
i don't know if this helps, but i'm 5'8", 145 pounds, with a chest size of 39 inches.
Of course this comes down to personal tastes so you'll need to ride more to find out what fits you best, but wider bars tend to give me sore neck after long rides, whereas narrow bars feel a little twitchy in general.
I own a set of Alloy bars and love them, apart from the diameter of the drops - a bit skinny for me. What is the diameter of the tubing on the carbon ones? (ideally, just want to know is the diameter of the carbon drops bigger than the alloy bars?)
