    Pics of Fleegle Bars on 29ers? or any bike for that matter?!?

    Hey

    Did a search and can't seem to find much info or any pics on the Fleegle bar on a bike? I've been doing a bar trawl and I am down to the Mary and Fleegle and I can get a good deal on a Fleegle and it has some sweep which is what I want but I can't for the life of me find pics on a bike? Any pics or thoughts on the Fleegs?

    I've ridden the Fleegle & Mary. Biggest difference between them is the Fleegle has less rearward sweep and 0 rise (almost feels like a negative rise). The Mary is swept back further and has some rise to it. The Fleegle is also wider by a good 2". Sorry, the pick is lame. FWIW I sold the Mary's but kept the Fleegle's works great on my SS loads of leverage.

    thanks heaps for the pic... negative rise is fine with me... thats what I was thinking, that I could turn them downwards a little and have a slight drop bar on them.

    I use a Fleegle.

    With the Fleegle I can pull a higher gear on my 29" than I do on my 26" bike.
    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    2 views. Now riding the mary. For rigid duties I preferred the extra sweep of the mary and conversion to SS made it ever so much more apparent that the mary was for me. I think the fleegle would be the cat's pajamas on a suspended rig over the mary though.

    I knew that looked familar. I rode that trail hundreds of times when I went to school in Tucson.

    Good schit except for the time I saw the roadie jerking off in the wash. Freak. I think his name was Paul Hanson. He's probably a convicted child rapist by now.

    that wins for the weirdest thing I have ever heard of someone seeing while riding. Weird with a capital W there.
