Thanks Julian, yes i will prefer used but in good condition. New with shipping to france, it's a little expensive  for a handlebar..

julio,
I replace mine every 4 or 5 years.
You can have mine in a month or so if you want them (they are just over 4 years old and in good condition).
Bars for free, carriage for the cost.
What is the best/cheapest way to send them to France for you from the UK?

The reason I change them is some years ago my GB alloy handlebars broke whilst riding.
I was lucky that time and only broke a rib on landing, also went sideways out of the commuting traffic stream.
I am now use Thorn Comfort Bars and change them every 4 or 5 years to avoid any chance at all of a breakage.
The ones that broke had been creaking - I did not know at that time that the creaking could be caused by a crystalline fracture of the bars.
Julian.

I think I'll try these bars as i could do with reducing the reach these days. One thing - will they be OK with Ergon GP5 bar ends? The backwards sweep won't put them at an difficult angle?

I heard somewhere that it's possible, but in my opinion i don't see the interest to add bar ends on this handlebar, as well i find this extension unsightly specially on this Comfort handlebar..

Julian,
I'm ok to receive your handlebar, thanks very much ! and in one month it will be ok for me, i will communicate to you my address at this moment.
I think Royal AirMail should be fine.. you will tell me the price, for information i can pay you by Paypal, if you have this process..

About me, i ride with a flat bars, i think it's this one :

I feel very comfortable with it, but i'm curious to try the Comfort bars and  i would like to reduce my stem height, i still find it  to high.
