PDQ CARBON TIME TRIAL BARS ... much the same as all the top guys are using ... but probably not quite as expensive.
The original and highly popular PDQPB with or without logos:
Stackable tri bar/pads - complete with 10mm
and 20mm risers and pads.
Minimum stack height (with no risers) - approx 5cms.
Stack height can be approx 50mm, 60mm, 70mm or 80mm with supplied risers and bolts.
Extra riser kits available to increase stack height even more!
Standard 22mm extension clamp.
Standard 31.8mm stem clamping section.
Length adjustable extensions.
Width/reach adjustable arm rest pads.
UCI Legal 3:1 aspect.
42cm c/c base bar.
Slight drop on base bar.
Internal cable routing.
Low weight - 600grams.
Clamping area - very slightly splayed - 42 mm wide at the front and 46 mm at the rear. Will NOT fit Oval Concepts 760 (for example).
Superb width adjustability.
Go narrow like Tony Martin (and me) ...
I got my first set of these before I realised I was past it and time trialling 'sucked'. They are VERY nice ... extremely light and mega-adjustable both length and width ways. You could even have the elbow rests (just about) touching if you're a Tony Martin wanabee.
Why try to go lower and possibly lose power, when you can go narrower and still put out the same power?
Following the current trend, the extensions (as well as the elbow rests) are raised above the base bar to follow the underside of the forearms which helps to
eliminate 'dirty' airflow.
Think about it ... the cockpit is one of the first things to hit the air. 'Smooth the lines' out there and you're going to save watts. Save watts and you'll go faster. No doubt about it.
Take a look at Wiggo's tt bikes (see top right) ... Hutch's too ... because these guys have been in the wind tunnel and know what's what. One thing is for sure, they wouldn't be using this type of set up if it wasn't faster.
They are going to be more aerodynamic than 'standard' tt bars ... surely?
Pick up a REAL bargain before they've gone!

IMPORTANT ... PLEASE NOTE
Replacement risers / spacers ... these are replacement sections for use when you have lost or damaged your own bar part. They should not be used to extend the height of the bars beyond what is supplied as standard with the bars at the original time of purchase. Fitting additional risers / spacers over and above those originally supplied with the bars nullifies the bars' warranty.
2 x 20 mm PDQ mk 2 risers / spacers
2 x 10 mm and 2 x 20 mm PDQ mk 2 risers / spacers
Also now available with superfast PDQ PB logos ... if you want. If you really really want.
Hi-tensile bolts to go high!
But ... please be aware that you will be nullifying the bar’s warranty by going any higher than with the bolts and risers supplied with the original PDQPB tt bar package (ie 2 x 10 and 2 x 20 mm risers each side). Going too high will put increasing stress at the points where the risers are positioned on the base bars. This will increase the higher you go and COULD result in failure.
Other suppliers of this type / style of bar only supply spare risers / spacers for use to replace those supplied with the original bars ... something along the lines of “Replacement risers / spacers ... these are replacement sections for use when you have lost or damaged your own bar part. They should not be used to extend the height of the bars beyond what is supplied as standard with the bars at the original time of purchase".
I only supply spare risers / spacers on that basis.
If you DO choose to go higher, maybe consider some sort of brace?
Having said all that, I have 4 x 20 mm risers fitted to each side of my bars WITHOUT any brace and have not experienced any damage after 24 months or so of use. However, I don't consider myself to have an aggressive style and am willing to take the risk of something going wrong!
So be aware please 🙂
