Soma 3-Speed II "Moustache" Handlebars: For mountain grips, shifters and brake levers


How do they compare with our other 3-Speed Moustache Bar





3-Speed II
Bar vs. Original 3-Speed Bar
Width: 540mm vs. 505mm
Drop: 35mm vs. 60mm
Grip
Diameter:22mm vs. 23.8mm




The gist of this all is that with the 3-Speed II Moustache Bar, you can add mountain grips, brake levers and shifters. Also, it's drilled for bar end shifters if you prefer..

These look nice. Would you confirm the width: you list them as 540mm here but 520mm on the product page. Also, is that center-to-center or edge-to-edge? Thanks.

Oops, our bad, sorry about that! The width is 540mm center-to-center.

Sweet! I was looking for a bar EXACTLY like this, resorting to eBay to find moustache bars from old XO-3's.

Do you have a dealer in France or the UK? Failing that, can I order direct and at what shipping rate for europe?

Re my above query, I've now found your dealer page and the UK link. Merci.

I'm interested in setting up these bars using mountain v-brake levers with adjacent thumb shifters for a roughstuff/fast commuting setup, probably using bar tape rather than mountain grips. Has anyone tried this and do you have a photo?

If only it's available in black. :(
