Grand Cru Course Handlebar- Classic Round Bend
Our Classic round bend handlebar, the Course bar, has a long flat ramp aft of the hoods. This allows you to slide you hands forward or back which, at least for me, adds a lot of comfort. The drops are open and also extra long so, again, there is plenty of room to move your hands fore and aft. The drops are parallel to the ramps on top, allowing them to be level. You’ll see bars like this on many classic constructeur bikes. This is a great all around drop bar for long distance. Though it may not be important to everyone, we also think this is a great looking bar with smooth classic curves and a very nice finish.
The Grand Cru crest appears on each side of the clamp area. The center section is highly polished. The area under the bar tape has a “sand blasted” finish.
The Course bars have a medium drop of about 125mm. The reach (measured from the stem clamp forward) is about 115mm. It has 30mm of flare. Available in 42, 46cm center-to-center. About 395g (44cm).
