The Alpha and Omega of handlebar bargains.
The FSA Omega Compact Road Handlebar brings some welcome innovations to an inexpensive component. There's the shot-peened aluminum finish and the grooves for cable routing, and those are nice, sure, but more interesting than that is the comfortable compact measurements that usually only appear on more expensive compact bars, and the fact that the drops flare out 10mm relative to the hoods — a more ergonomically-friendly position not found on many bars, period, much less bars at this price point (the flare means that a 42cm bar measures 42cm center-to-center at the drops, but 41cm center-to-center at the hoods). A great upgrade for a cyclocross or training bike.
