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 FSA Omega Compact Black Handlebar
Review from Bikeradar
So-called 'compact' drop handlebars are already a standard fitment on many sportive bikes, and we love 'em.
The shallow 125mm drop on the Omega makes the transition from hoods to drops less pronounced than a standard 140-160mm drop anatomic bar, and FSA have been generous, providing a longer-than-average section on the drops.
The design also has a shorter forward reach than most anatomic bars, providing a slightly more upright riding position when your hands are on the hoods. In addition, a double groove rather than a single one makes for slightly neater cable routing.
The butted 6061 alloy tubing is thick enough to withstand the internal expanding clamp of bar-end shifters and the bar is compatible with 31.8mm stems, but we'd like to see a version for 26.0mm as well.
It's good to see the often ignored 38cm width available, along with the usual 40, 42 and 44cm. Fitting the Omega will add around 302g to your bike's heft.
