    Im on the market for a set of drop bars, and these 2 seem to be the cream of the crop. I was looking for user opinions on each , or if you would suggest something different. Thanks

    road drops.

    I like my Pista bars, but I hate them on the street. The matte black finish also gets chipped if you only half wrap and you're running them on the street.

    Oh rabbi, I admire your persistent effort to make people do the most practical thing but its becoming clear to me that practical is uncool in fixed gear bikes.

    I know, this will be for my other bike , with a threadless hs. Itll be mostly for the street since the closest track is 3.5 hours away , but Id eventually like to hit the track. Road drops look too big

    i have no idea what you mean by this? road drops have less drop and reach than track drops. if you're worried about width, they make road drops small, too.

    Rabbi what you're doing is admirable but you know damn well when a kid decides track drops / aerosp0ks / kashimax 5gps / 650c wheels are the hottness there's nothing you can say or do to change that fool's mind. The power of suggestion provided by hours of youtube mash videos can not be undone with a few intelligent words about comfort and fit.
    I love your style but I'm afraid you're too late. It really is all about looks anymore.

    Cache' Rules Everything Around Meeeee!!!


    And deermatt the Dedas and Eastons are pretty much the same. I'd just pick whatever you can get a better deal on.

    Thanks for the info, but Im totally not in that stereotype, I just wanted a nice set of drops . Most of the road drops I have seen were either shaped weird, or too wide.

    both of those bars suck on the road. they are track bars for a reason. i own the steal dedas and they blow on the streets.
    i've only ridden the easton ec 90 briefly (friends ride, on the track) but i doubt they are going to treat your wrists very well on the street either.

    I have the deda pista drops and I don't find them that bad on the street. Of course, my risers are more comfortable on the street. But if your really wanting drops, i would go with the deda drops mostly because your going to be on the street and they are a cheaper way to go. Mine never hurt my wrists and I have found three comfortable positions on my drops.

    I'm amazed that no one has mentioned that the easton ec90 tracks bars are $330.
    If you are determined to have track drops on the street, go with the dedas.
