    Default Shimano/Pro Vibe bar shape

    Hey-0,

    How different is the Pro Vibe 7s (round) shape from the Pro Vibe (compact) shape? I have one from 2016 or maybe 2015 and I totally dig it. Just don't want to order a new one if they're drastically different.

    I saved those images long ago. You never know when that kind of hard to find info might come in handy.

    Pics arenít showing up on my phone but the compact is very similar to a zipp 80 without any flare (the drops are perfectly parallel to top tube.)

    The round pros were pretty unique bars, i never found anything too similar but the zipp 70s are close. Disclaimer - zipp has changed the shape of those bars at least 3 times since their inception when they were called the service course csl

    I bought some of the compact ones as I liked the look of the drops and the way they fit with Shimano levers (which makes sense) but the fact that almost all of the top of the bar is oversized bothers me - Iíve got big hands but it just felt silly so I changed them for some Easton ones which taper a few inches out from the stem.
