A beautifully machined piece of engineering, hand made from start to finish in the UK. Perfect for urban or polo use. Cut from a solid block of 6082 aluminium alloy. Constant diameter straight bar (solid) with domed ends, central knurling and laser engraving. Reassuringly hefty and a pleasure to handle.
Please note. Sadly we are discontinuing this bar. At present we still have final stock of the following options ONLY: custom polished in 26.0mm & 26.4mm (ALL OTHER SIZES/COLOURS SOLD OUT). See listing below for 26.0mm option.
Length of all bars is 38cm. This is a good all-round sensible width for traffic dodging while still retaining full control - remember your feet and pedals will be wider than this anyway. See FAQ for more.
IMPORTANT: being constant diameter these bars need care in fitting to avoid scratches - please see the Blog article for fitting tips before installing these bars and ensure they will fit your stem - we cannot accept returns of scratched bars because the wrong size was forced in! Each bar is supplied with detailed fitting instructions. Brake levers that fit this bar include the Dirt Harry and Tektro Cross Top levers. Please see FAQ for handlebar info. Please note that traditionally polished items may tarnish over time due to weather, normal use etc and may require cleaning or re-polishing - we recommend 'Peek' (easily found on eBay).
This is our very popular cut-down riser. Not being able to find a riser bar in the required width we take NOS mountain bike risers and reduce them to a more suitable narrow width for urban use of 40cm.
Additional wider 50cm option now in stock. This gives more space for controls/grips and a wider position compared to the more urban 40cm. Ready to fit with grips of your choice (40cm is not usable with 'lock-on' type grips).
These are professionally cut down by our UK engineers for a superb 'factory finish' with chamfered and machined ends inside and out. Finished in polished aluminium alloy or black. All bars have the VeloSolo logo laser engraved as with our Squeeze bars above.
Rise is approximately 30mm with slightly swept back ends. Stiff and strong and ideal for commuting and city use. Fits any 25.4 stem or use a Nitto shim to fit to 26.0mm stem or a Zenith 25.4mm to 31.8mm shim for oversize stems. Please see FAQ for handlebar info.
Classic super strong chromed steel track bar from Nitto. NJS certified for professional Keirin track use. Curving forward flat section and deep drop. Available with width of 38cm or 40cm centre to centre. Fits 25.4 stem or use Nitto shim to fit to 26.0mm stem. Made in Japan with beautiful bright chrome finish and good old 'brown paper' wrapping. Yes, Nitto make lighter weight aluminium alloy versions of this bar (email us if you want one) but there is just something about the incredibly solid feeling, deeply chromed, reliable steel heft of this bar that appeals. On pulling it out of the brown paper wrapping you will know what we mean. Please see FAQ for handlebar info.
Exact same design as above but made from cro-mo steel for a slight weight advantage. NJS certified for professional Keirin track use. Curving forward flat section and deep drop. Available with width of 38cm or 40cm centre to centre. Fits 25.4 stem or use Nitto shim to fit to 26.0mm stem. Made in Japan with beautiful bright chrome finish and traditional paper wrapping (grey not brown).
A superb budget alternative to the Nitto bars above. A copy of the Nitto B115 this is a classic compact shape with traditional curved drops but with shallow grooves to upper section.
Polished central section (bead blasted to remainder). No logos. Width is 40.5cm centre to centre (centre of drops) and 41.5cm at the base of the very slightly flared out drops. Drop approx 140mm. Weight is 355g. Options for 25.4mm. Highly recommended. Please see FAQ for handlebar info.
Another Nitto classic, the aluminium alloy bullhorn bar with up-turned ends. Probably the nicest bullhorn out there and a neat alternative to chopping down that old Cinelli bar in the shed. Available in two widths of 38cm or 40cm. Fits a 26.0mm stem.
This is the high spec heat-treated and gun-metal grey anodized version. Nitto make a cheaper non-HT bullhorn too. Made in Japan with laser engraved Nitto markings. Works well with plug-in or cross-top type levers.
A bit different to the above bars - imagine a drop bar with the ends turned back up. Consequently quite wide but with a huge range of hand positions and very minimal drop. Sweeps forward quite a bit so keep the stem length shorter than normal. Heat-treated aluminium alloy with a 25.4mm clamp area. Now available in 26.0mm too. Satin finish, made in Japan.
Mountain bike flat bars (slightly swept back) from Kalloy in
satin black or polished/satin silver (Kalloy seem to vary the finish on these between polished and satin - please email if a particular finish is required). Clamp area is 25.4mm to fit MTB stems or use on a road/fixed bike with quill stem (see below).
Note: Kore black bars now replaced by un-branded Kalloy. Un-branded (no logos) with gentle rear sweep around 5 degrees. Standard width is 560mm (22") but we are happy to cut these down to whichever custom width you require at no extra cost (min advised around 38cm). Please send a note when ordering.
As with Andel and Surly cogs so it is with Zenith and Dia Compe - this is the exact same stem Zenith manufacture for Dia Compe but unbranded and logo free. Our most popular stem. Not having a GC logo makes it around £15 less and superb value. These are new to VeloSolo and fill the gap nicely between the Kalloy and Nitto stems. Quill height is 130mm with max extension of 62mm.
Styling is very similar to the classic Cinelli 1A or Nitto Technomic. Manufacture is equally good being forged, with high quality machining and a very attractive polished or black anodized finish. There is a large range of options - clamps in 25.4mm or 26.0mm, lengths in 80mm or 100mm and finish in polished or black. New length of 60mm now in stock. Quill is 22.2mm (standard 1") for threaded steerer. Angle is 73 deg. Highly recommended. Please see FAQ for handlebar and stem info
Note: standard model in all sizes above has a 130mm quill with max extension of 63mm. A longer quill (180mm with max extension of 113mm) is now available in two options only; 25.4mm x 80mm black and 26.0 x 80mm polished. Please email to request these options or use 'send a message to seller' when checking out.

As above ideal for town use with cut-down risers or 'all-rounder' style bars. Quill is 22.2mm (standard 1") for threaded steerer. Clamp size is 25.4mm. Please see FAQ for handlebar and stem info
Beautiful professional level forged stem from Nitto. Certified (NJS stamped) for professional level Keirin track racing in Japan. Angle is 58 deg so gives a very deep drop to the bars.

Precision made shim to space a 25.4mm track bar (or VS Squeeze bar) to fit perfectly in a 26.0mm stem. Not cheap (as with Nitto bars the weak £ is affecting these badly) but safe, secure and very well made in stainless steel. Please see FAQ for handlebar and stem info
Precision machined aluminium alloy shims in three sizes. Available in 22.2mm to 25.4mm (silver finish), 25.4mm to 31.8mm and 26.0mm to 31.8mm (black finish). A safe and reliable way to fit a narrower bar to a wider stem. Please see FAQ for handlebar and stem info
