    Lets see your bar! All things bar related

    Tried finding a bar thread, didn't look to hard but didn't see one.

    Anyways what kinda bars you riding on your 29er, and for what style of riding?

    Carbon haven, thinking of getting a wider bar, maybe a carbon havoc.

    Truvativ Noir T40 Carbon. 700mm wide with 15mm rise.

    It's such a fine line between idiocy and genius.

    This one: Noir carbon medium rise 660mm. I ride anything from XC to some FR.

    My rigid steel SS has Easton EA-70 carbon bars and my geared hard tail has alum bars. On 29er's I like bars between 650-700mm with 100mm or so stems.

    787mm Truvativ Boobar, 50mm Truvativ Hussefelt stem. Both were cheap/free.

    No pics, just a really wide and low bar setup.

    I've got the Carnegie's on two of my bikes. I didn't know they discontinued them, I wonder why. I love those bars.

    Kore Torsion flat bar cut down from 710mm to 670mm on a 100mm Truvativ Stylo T20 stem. Light mounts at the center of the bar. I lost my bar plugs and need to replace em before I get a chunk of love handle taken out.

    When the chicks at school see how gay we are, they're gonna be all over us.

    Running H-Bars all around

    Nashbar had them for $60, and with a 20% off coupon, tax and sometimes free shipping, they came out to $60 landed.

    I love my H-Bars. I used to have wrist pain. No longer. I can go all day long now. I ride mostly XC-Trail.

    So, non OS H-Bars, Small Ergon grips for my large hands (weird, huh?) and Garmin 305 on the stem.





    Sometimes, the view over the bars ain't so great.

    Uh, Dimond Canyon Trail (yes that is spelled correctly) in Oakland CA, going down a steep downhill switchback staircase. I leaned on the front brake going super slow a bit too much with the bars cocked pretty far around. The rim took all of my weight with the wheel sideways to dead stop the bike when I wussed out. Wups.

    S'okay, I "fixed" it (in ironic quotes)!

    Sorry about the lack of focus.... Skip to 1:20 for the goods.

    (NSFW language)



    Heh... I ended up doing another 15 dirt miles on it before riding home.

    I love this town. Imagine having some decent legal techy singletrack puzzles to solve a quarter mile from your front door that you can ride year 'round, that lead up to some more great trails. Yep... that's my backyard!

    Ha! I was actually rockin' a Forte bar to see if I wanted to go flat. 720mm/220gm and I got it for like $29.00. Great deal.
