While I’d like to take time to discuss the seat post category a bit more, I’ll concede for now and move on to another important category. We’ve settled one touch point already with the Fizik Aliante. For now, it will be attached to a Thomson seat post. Now, let’s discuss another important touch point, handlebars. Today’s question is a bit different. It’s got two options for the same category. There is also one bonus category today.
I’ve already shared that the stem will be a Salsa stem. Just which stem will depend on whether or not a certain new Salsa prototype stem arrives in time for this build. If the new stem doesn’t arrive in time for this build, we’ll fall back on a classic. So with that, we are looking for two recommendations.
We need handlebar recommendations for both a 26.0 diameter stem clamp and a 31.8 diameter stem clamp. Could be two different bars. Could be the same bar if it’s available in both diameters. Also looking for input on bar tape if anyone has strong feelings on bar tape.

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
