Bars: The heat treated Nitto M106 are perfect bars for the Stanforth Conway - they’re strong and lightweight. The bars are compact (78mm reach) and shallow (128mm drop) so the drops are in easy reach.
The heat-treated aluminum construction provides strength and durability while keeping the weight low.
Shifters: Shimano 105 STI’s control the gear changing. They are slim with good ergonomic design. Shimano have positioned the brake lever pivots to increase power and improve ergonomics. A feature we like is the ability to fine tune the reach up to 10 mm with adjusters for custom fitment for all hands.
If you have a preference for bar-end shifters we can switch the levers to TRP’s and shifters to Dura Ace 2 x 11 bar-end shifters, just let us know at the time of ordering.
The stem: The anodized black 3D forged stem has a 31.8mm bar bore for the Nitto M106 O/S bars. Angle of rise is 7 degree and stack height 40mm.
Tape: We use our favourite bar tape which we already use on the Kibo Dirt Drop and Skyelander 700c, the Profile Design Drive cushioned bar tape.
The most comfortable bar tape we've ever come across...
