I have to say I’m a big fan of 46cm wide road bars (as on my Planet X). I might even go for a 48 if there was such a beast (and not a X-cross type where drops are wider than tops).
I certainly think that with the growth of sportive rides that road component companies should look at 46 and 48s for added comfort for riders. who knows even “big” racers might like a wide bar?

I run 46cm Bell Laps on my CX- I can’t reccomend them highly enough…

What’s special about the RP23? is it a longer than usually available model for ‘bigger’ bikes?

Is that Ed Oxley in the p*sspot helmet?

I’ll be interested to see what you think about the super4.
Got one in my ‘demo’ collection.
I’d still probably get a meta, but that said ,it doesnt feel shortchanged.

If that headset on the left is a zero stack thing, and you don’t need a zero stack thing, but you do want a quick review from a low budget MTB-er of a zero stack thing, then get in touch. Would be more than happy to oblige!
(could scrape the gravel/loose bearings out of the rusty pit that is my current finely tuned setup then)

The headset on the left is for 1.5 headtubes so that you can run a regular 1.125in steerer, but with super low stack height – what most chunky headtube bikes seem to be doing rather than running a full 1.5 fork. I think it already has a home on one of our regular test bikes, but if not we’ll keep you in mind…

Thanks Chipps but what I would need is a Cane Creek “Zero Stack” not “one.point.five”. Or “Integral” as Hope would have it, or semi-integrated as others would have it… Standards eh!
So anyway, it might not fit 🙂
Which of these bikes do you aspire to own next?
