Sim Works: the So Bar is a 50cm Wide Noodle Bar Nov 1, 2018

When it comes to noodles, people love ramen, but the noodle of choice for the Sim Works team in Nagoya, Japan are soba noodles. Thus inspiring the So Bar noodle bar. These 26.0 clamp bars are perfect for randonneuring, touring, or commuter bikes, offering many hand positions, with the overall width measuring in at 50cm and 49cm at the hoods. These bares have a 4° flare, are made in Japan by Nitto, and in stock now at Sim Works.

    the name is just slightly different than the out of production Riv Soba bar. Still have one from years ago atop my Eroica ready ’75 Gitane TDF.

    oh yea that Ahearne on the Sim Works site if a stunner too.

    • Yep! That’s Golden Plier’s build. So sick.

    My shoulders and wrists hurt just thinking about it!

    This is a Great Thing but only slightly bigger than a 48cm Noodle. Would sure love a 54ish cm Noodle! Or at least I think I would, having never tried one…

    Why not 31.8?

    • Not sure. Maybe because Noodle bars are traditionally 26.0 for randonneuring frames?

      The idea is that less stiff bars help dampen vibrations and make for a more comfortable ride over long distances.
