Cowbell Drop Handlebar
If you're after a versatile and durable alloy drop bar for your all road riding exploits, have a look at this Cowbell Drop Handlebar from Salsa. It blends the comfort of more hand positions with the security of aluminum and is ideal on both gravel and paved roads. Salsa designs the Cowbell with mixed terrain racing and riding in mind and the 44cm (center-to-center) bar, measured at the hoods, comes in at a not too shabby 314g.
The Cowbell gets a 12-degree flare that places your hands, wrists, and arms into a more natural position while in the relatively shallow 115mm drops. The short, 68mm reach receives a 12-degree ramp angle allowing you to achieve a smooth transition from the bar to the hoods. The Cowbell bars are available in 38, 40, 42, 44, and 46cm widths, have a 31.8mm clamp diameter with 140mm worth of clamping area for use with Salsa's Anything Cradle or aerobars.

Great Gravel Bars
- I've used it several times
I threw these on my Gorilla Monsoon for grinding some gravel up (its all sand thanks to my gravel grinding) and these bars specifically helped in that. I wanted a wide bar that flaired slightly and felt that the Cowchipper was sort of like Brian from Office Space, just too much flair. The Cowbells have been perfect so far and didn't have to pay an arm & a leg either. They aren't the lightest option out there, but I am throwing them on a steel gravel grinder/monstercross bike with 2.2" tires on them, not exactly concerned about weight.

How much wider are the drops, than the hoods were this bar is measured?
