Very interested in the bike doc bars that are 38cm at the drops. Want to wait to hear what people riding them for a while say.

I’m very surprised any of more well known Chinese cockpit manufacturers haven’t gotten on this trend yet. Seems like something that is going to be a big trend in the future, especially as frame manufacturers move towards do it all frames and rely on other components for aero gains.

Especially, 4-5cm wider drop than hood and steeper than 10 degree stem is an obvious miss in the current sea of integrated bar options.
Everyone make a version of their bar with drop 2cm wider than hood, 80-130mm -6 or -10 degree stem equivalent integrated bar.

I'm waiting for sub 330 grams integrated bar with 30-32cm hood, 35-36cm drop, -12 to -17 degree 120mm stem.

Couldn't agree more. That's what I'm holding out for, too. Well perhaps I'd like 38-40cm on the drops.

Suddenly it appeared in Germany Image (I’m in Poland). They sent it via DHL. Maybe I’ll get them before next weekend

My bikedoc 340mm bars arrived today via DHL, 9 days since ordering so pretty fast!
Perfect timing as I’m starting long weekend now.

Will post some pictures tomorrow, hopefully also mounted on a bike (aethos)

Wrapped with bartape. Went with minimal wrap ending just to hide the cables

I had first short test ride. Feels good, only weird part is out of the saddle climbing but I had a same sensation when I switched to 36cm bars with hoods turned in so I think I just need some getting used to it. On flats it feels great and fast. I’ve never had mywindsock estimated cda so low ImageImage

Do you think those numbers are accurate?
This is what I had on my last fast solo ride.
(I use 36cm wide integrated bar)Image

I don’t think numbers are accurate in absolute sense (so compared to you for example) but I consider them somewhat accurate relative to my other rides (same location, tires, power meter, legs etc ).

It takes a couple weeks to get used to out of saddle climbing with narrower bars.
