I noticed that I had a bend in the bars of my Colnago that should not have been there :agree::rant:

Went out and got a new set today. Holy shit. when I took the old bars off not only was there a bend at the drops but both sides of the clamping area were bent down. Methinks I was heading for a catastrophic failure. New bar is a 44cm

well that was a fun shake down ride. Just had to rotate the bar up a few degrees to make a flat surface for riding on the hoods The short reach drops make for good high speed handling. My old bars were 42cm these are 44s. they are nicer for getting up out of the saddle for climbing and sprints. Had to retape the left bar, noticed that I effed up wrapping the bar tape around the brake hoods. I will try and get up early before the heat hits tomorrow and get in some miles.
