Bella Ciao launch new range of handlebars

City bike bars with a classic look

by Mat Brett   December 15, 2010  

City bike specialists Bella Ciao have just launched a new range of Componenti Speciali handlebars. The bars are made of 7075 aluminium alloy and are hand polished to give a subtle shine effect – similar to vintage Cinelli or TTT classic bars and stems.

There are four models in the range – two swept back, one flat, and one riser bar – and they’re made exclusively for Bella Ciao in a small workshop in Germany. The polishing is a dirty process with a rotating tool and Bella Ciao reckon the finish is impossible to achieve using fully automated methods.

The diameter for all the bars is 22.2mm while the stem clamping diameter is 25.4mm. They cost £30 each from Bikesales4u.
