The Albatross is another of the Rivendell commissions and very nice it is too. The heat treated bar is one of thse designs that perhaps might be considered a bit quaint until you spend time with it and then the elegance of the design becomes apparent and you realise it is rather serious after all. As if the red stripe denoting heat treatment were not sufficient indication that the bar is intended for proper riders.
The bar is the normal 25.4 clamp diameter and includes plastic plugs already fitted the ends. These can be removed easily enough and bar end shifters fitted, as I have already done with one customer. It also looks timelessly great with the cork grips on. The grip and control diameter is 2.22 mm diameter for normal mountain bike levers, etc.
