Thanks for taking time to mine that info out of the internette, man. The only difference between my bars and those Mod V bars is that mine are shaped like track drops on top, in that they have no straight section.

Nitto Mod.V Pistol-Grip

"A rare variation of the standard Model V drop bar, this model has an extra inch or so of tube on the drops, the last 2" of which have been gracefully curved at roughly 40° downward, for an additional and very comfortable hand position, usually for a very tucked and aero body position.

It is also very good for tandem stoker bars--reversed in most cases, with the ''pistol-grips'' up, with or without armrests added."
