Modolo Q-Krono



My first bullhorn bar ever, Modolo Q-Krono, and I like the feeling. It's an old one and 40cm wide but it seems that Modolo has actually re-issued this model. Ok, in fact I've no idea if they ever even stopped making these but in any case you can find them in the 'Vintage Handlebar' -section of their 2009 catalogue. 

I'm also pretty sure that Nitto had one of these on their drawing board when they were designing their popular MASH SF -approved RB-021 bar.

i like the nitto rb21 better. i have both, and i must say you actually feel the q-krono flex under load. looked it up on the internet, and i found people on bikeforums claiming similar stuff about the q-krono. oh well, i still rides, doesn't it? :)

The flex is a good point, Alex.

I'm more of a medium-sized dude so I probably won't be able to make the bars flex too much but yeah, that could be an issue. Modolos are probably not heat-treated the way Nittos are, I guess.
