Personally Id love to get a big fat pay raise and then not actually have to work for it.

Wonder how long these will last before the UCI finds a way to ban them.

Well they're ugly as poo poo which is as good a reason as any to ban something, but to be honest, if you could get in a more aggressive position without sacrificing control I'd like it to be ok.

Why not go the whole hog and just create a one piece aero bar at that point?

Someone might, but not a small brand like Coefficient. -7/-17deg x 90-130cm x 38cm-44cm is a lot of SKUs.

I don't think theres any rules on handlebar width to stop this.

I'm sure there will be soon!

What shape rules are there? The drops have to be the most forward projecting part of the bar?

The computer bridge definitely extends past the drops and these bars are currently UCI legal.

The below seems like the limiting factor:

UCI Regs Article 1.3.022 posted:

The traditional type of handlebars must be used in road races, cyclo-cross and track races
(apart from track time trials and pursuits). The attachment of any additional handlebar
component or extension is prohibited in these events.

In no case shall the front of the handlebars exceed the tolerance of 5 cm in relation to a
vertical line passing through the front wheel axle, which is the control zone of the bicycle.


So you can do pretty much what you like within that box so long as it's a one piece item and not an add-on, and it still seems 'traditional' in appearance. Although I think in reality that boils down to 'if the UCI decide it's non-traditional, get hosed' as everything has to be certified before you can race it anyway.

Only Van der Poel can do a leadout with half a handlebar.

Canyon have issued a 'DO NOT RIDE' notice to the bike over this until they get it fixed. So thats 2 warranty issues on their flagship bike already.

Winning group that. I thought Van Der Poel had made it across but it was the luxenbourg national champ instead.

Maybe not, Wout van Aert has had enough of this and is killing his team.
