The Condorina, a cafe-racer style handlebar for your bicycle



Given that this handlebar was inspired by Italian motociclettas, I traveled to North Beach, the Italian neighborhood of San Francisco, to capture its sophisticated beauty. It has a very European feel: narrow streets, motorcycles, cafes and small shops with a lovely park in the center. So yes, here's the Condorina enjoying a North Beach espresso..


Here's the whole handlebar, motorcycles afficionados might see resemblance to the club man bar. We hope it will find a home on fixies, townies, and other unique bikes.

Here are the specs:
- Tange steel
- Width: 580mm
- Sweep: 15 degrees back with 5 degree drop/rise
- Center: 25.4mm
- Grip: 22.2mm

If you've already got these bars or plan to purchase them in the near future, send us some pictures! We would love to see what you've been inspired to do with them - this includes taking them out for espresso!!
