Bars: The Kibo Dirt Drop comes with the super strong and stiff heat treated Nitto M106 SSB bars. We can also supply Salsa Woodchipper or the Rithey Venturemax flared drop bars as an upgrade

Shifters: Microshift 10 speed bar-end shifters are highly durable and reliable. Friction controls the front chainwheel and a choice of indexed or friction control the rear cassette, it takes a matter of seconds to switch from one to the other.

Levers: The beautiful TRP RRL SL, more info here Dirt Drop brakes


The stem:  We offer a choice of ahead (1 1/8" threadless steerer) and quill (for 1" threaded steerer).

The ahead is a Zenith hollow forged AL6061-T6 aluminium stem for the 26.0mm diameter handlebars. We have a range of lengths which which will be decided during the design stage of your bike. We often getting asked - quill or ahead? For expedition touring we recommend the ahead - the wider diameter steerer and stem combination is stiffer and stronger.

Our standard quill stem on the Kibo Dirt Drop is the Nitto Technomic Deluxe Tallux made from cold forged aluminium and has a beautiful finish.

Tape: I've never used such comfortable tape as this - it's Profile Design cushioned Drive bar tape in black. If you would like to upgrade to Brooks leather then let us know
