    My new AM handlebar setup

    I have a set of Jonze bars on my xc ss and I just couldn't get used to regular bars on my Am rig so I picked up these babys cheap. So far so good . They are very comfie. Feels wierd having a 120mm stem on a AM rig but my hands sit around the same spot as if I were running a 100-90mm stem and normal risers.

    Jeff Jones said he's licensed the H-Bar design to Titec. Expect the aluminum H-Bar to be available, just not sure when
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    i was rocking mary bars on the SS, now the AM bike and the commuter also have a set. straight bars (riser or flat!) are on their way out, slowly...

    They've been avaliable for quite a while. I remember seeing them in the QBP catalogue maybe 8-12 months ago.

    mmmmmhhhh... it reminds me of the handlebars found on the Diamonbacks of late 80's-early 90's

    Then the flat bar came because everybody wanted to race, then the riser came again... and it seems we're going full circle to the beginning.

    Nice set-up.... let us know how it works out for you in the long run.
    I remember hating an angle so pronounced on the bars on tight switchbacks back then.

    is that right?

    An e-mail from Jeff himself last April said, Titec "will be making" a licensed aluminum version and that he didn't know when it will be available. I wouldn't be surprised if some Taiwanese manufacturers have knocked off the design

    OK, you guys win. They're listed in the paper catalogue, and have been for a while, but if you look online they aren't avaliable yet.

    I have a riser bar and that is about as trendy as I'll go for bars. The Jeff bars just look too much beach cruiser for my taste.





    Anyways I think they would look downright wrong on my Moment.
