    Source for Ti handlebars

    I want to get some Ti handlebars with around 15 degree sweep and 1.5" rise. Built for strength, not for light weight. Anybody know of a source?

    Try Seven. I just received a 705mm 15d bend from them. Price and turnaround time is not bad either.

    I don't think Seven does rise though.
    Just a regular guy.

    Definitely talk to James at Black Sheep Bikes... he'll make bars with any bend or rise you can imagine! I've been really happy with mine for two years now!

    I just ordered some mustache bars from Black Sheep, slightly different from what his "stock" bend is. What a cool guy. Hope to have them this week

    I have a totally awesome Ti bar design that Lynskey have just finished fabrication of the first samples. We've done 9deg and 20deg sweep, with 1.5in rise. Oversize clamp. Pricing set to be circa $350, but weigh only 227g, and have a lifetime guarantee.

    More news soon.

    As in bulged (like the old Ibis bars), not shimmed? That would be sweet.

    I have a Black Sheep riser bar I like a lot fwiw.

    Seven will not do a rise bar with sweep. Black Sheep does some amazing bars.

    Don't forget Groovy Cycles. Was looking at a Luv Handle on the web page today and noted Rody does them in Ti, and does custom bars, too. If money were no object, I'd have already ordered a 28" wide Ti Luv Handle.

    Speedway Cycles in Anchorage

    . . . has custom ti bars which should fit your desires and, unlike H bars, you can run any type of shifter and brake lever on them.

    As in 3pc welded, with an oversize central section, not bulged.

    Actually, a bit less than $350 perhaps. $250 looks possible (altered for exchange rates and UK sales tax).

    I thought the plastic shim was to help keep them from creaking?

    Yeah, sorry, my bad. I thought of that after I posted so I retract stupid statement.

    Maybe I'll just have to get one. I hope they are nice and compliant.

    The centre of the clamp is "re-rounded" after welding to ensure a good connection with the stem. Much cheaper not to do that. Much cheaper to do it in inch tubing and shim it. But Lynskey like doing things right.

    the speedway bars are pretty friggen cool, and come with options that you likely wont find on any other bar, anywhere, like threaded bosses on the underside for mounting all sorts of stuff.

    Dean

    Check the website under components, I think the standard is $175 with a 25" width and a 3/4" rise. Custom rise, sweep and length is $25 extra.

    Not the bar shown below.

    We're modifying so it fits more bikes (less sticky out bits), and should be ready in 3-4 weeks.

    25 inches? that's a useless width unless building a circa 1994 retro bike.

    28 inches is a more useful width for the modern market. especially single speed.
