Price is probably unchanged because it's still the older version.

Hmhm, wonder how these new ones compare to the new falcons iteretion
I would imagine any new canary being built is using T1100 since people were getting that before Avian announced anything publicly afaik. There might be a small chance that panda podium has an existing handlebar for an odd size. China is also celebrating labor day now.

Was using 5Nm on my Propel. Terrible cracking noises everytime I'd run over some uneven road or bump.
Support told me to go to 8Nm. I settled with 7Nm and an Aluminum Spacer from Deda and also put other screws in. Now it's fine.
5 was definetely to low and the lightweight screws to soft.

Do you have a picture of your setup? I'm interested in the avian versions since EXS is probably not going to be available and the cadex bars are too late

I had the misfortune to recieve a wrong sent bar from a local distributer and took the opportunity to weigh both bars.

the 360*80 one seems to be the newer version and dispite the smaller size, weight difference is minimal.

Cant feel much flex on the new one with my 50kg body.

The 70mm reach is a special version. I assume you wanted that perticular model on purpose? That bar is lighter because it has less reach and width than the other one, despite the stiffer carbon and additional reinforcement.

The computer mounting studs seem to have different depths between the two models.

Has anyone ordered falcons off their site? I'm a bit confused as they don't specifically offer OD2 bars.

Let's see. I've just sent them a mail.

Wrt to the reach: that's odd. Falcon has 70 reach

Apologies, I originally ordered a 360*80 with 76mm reach to mirror what i had originally on my bike.
But they delivered a 380*90 with 76mm. After 2 months of back and forth, the gave me a 360*80 with 70mm reach.

At that point I was tired of dealing with them and just accepted it. Apparently it has the T1100 instead so its better for me i guess.

I'll take some later.

Falcon having 70mm Reach is why I picked this over the Canary, and also one of the reasons why I didn't wait for the Cadex. I prefer shorter bars over the 75mm, or even more.

Does anyone have to share what it would look like on a 2021 TCR Advanced with external wiring?

I have spoken with Avian few days ago and they told me they have Canary in sizes 400-100 and 420-90 with reach 70. Specially designed for Asian riders.
Can anyone explaine,please?On the website shows that the stem angle is 10 degrees. But visually I see that the stem is lowered down and looks like -10 degrees. Where is the truth? I need to calculate how many spacers to use. Anyone use it with Deda DCR headset?
