What handlebar size do I need?
The rule of thumb when selecting the correct handlebar width is to measure the distance between the two bony bits on your shoulders – in more scientific terms the distance between your two acromioclavicular (AC) joints. This measurement gives you a baseline – if it’s 38cm, look for 38cm bars – and so on.

What diameter are drop bars?
Standard road drop handlebars (including track, cyclocross and touring bars) use a 23.8 mm (15⁄16 in) grip/lever diameter, which is matched only to road bike type shifters or brake levers. This diameter is usually not important for grips since these bars most often are wrapped in tape.
How long should MTB grips last?
Depending on the grips, every 2-3 years.
