Nitto components are all about the classic look, and the Noodle road handlebar is all about the quintessential appeal of the way cycling was once upon a time. Featuring lightweight aluminum construction and a shape refined by years of consistent use, the noodle looks right at home on your vintage fixie, classic road rig, or neo-retro touring steed. The shape is unique in its flat hand perch, slight curve back on the top, and a four degree flare out that keeps you comfortable on these bars in just about any position. Don't waffle on which handlebars to grab, try the Nitto Noodle and take off on the road, whether it''s pancake flat or not.

I went with the 42cm width and am happy I finally bought this bar after reading positive reviews for a couple of years. Very comfortable position in front of the hoods as well as on the hoods. Drops are perfect. Price and shipping was outstanding as usual.
Summed up: You should try this bar if you want several comfortable hand positions. You are able to go as wide as you could possibly want.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

I was disappointed with the bars. I read so many great things about them. But for me, I much prefer the FSA Compact bars. The drops extend further back and the bars are more substantial. For me, it's FSA Compact.
Please keep in mind; I want less reach and less drop.
The best quality metal handlebar. It has a nice shape that steals from some of the developments in road handlebar shapes in recent years (flat ramps, longer drops). This bar, fitted with Tekro brakes makes a wonderful touring combination. I add a little bit of extra handlebar tape to pad the gap between the bar and the brake and make it flatter. This works very well.
It accepts bar end shifters. It is a pain that it is built with the less common Italian clamp size (26.0 mm).
