    Wider Flat Bars where can I find them?

    I got my Tallboy and love it transfered over from my old bike the 26/660mm Monkeylite XC riser bars, but now do feel I need some flatbars to make the setup perfect, but it seems that everything is too narrow anyone now where to get carbon 26 in bars???

    My new favorites are the Easton EC Wide flat bars. Carbon, 27" wide and 9 degree sweep. I cut mine to 25" for the tight trails I ride.

    I have a Gravity 777 on my SS. Super wide but not the lightest thing in the world. Every time I think of cutting them down, I end up on a big climb and loving the leverage.

    I had just crawled out of bed, and was definitely a tiny bit harsh, but still don't feel bad.

    Go through the page, some are narrow and some are wide.

    Almost every manufacture now makes a wide flat bar. Do a little research, and you will be surprised what you can find.

    Race Face, Syncros, Easton, Salsa, Niner, Crank Brothers, and Titec to name a few.

    Look at Specialized too. 680 mm wide - your choice of alloy and carbon.

    I have the Ritchey Superlogic carbon rizer bar on both my bikes and love them. There's only a very slight rise and they're plenty wide.

    That's going to be the next bar I try, but I'm pretty happy with my Carnegies now.

    Loved mine at that width. Unfortunately, I had to cut it down cuz the trees are too close together. I was getting real sick of busting my little finger. It's now at a measly 28".

    what do you cut them with a specific blade etc...sorry I am not a handyman and would not want to mess up a $100 HB and would want it to be done so there is no potential for cracking/the crack creeping up and weakening the bar...

    FYI- Niner now also has a 9 degree 710mm (~175g @ 710mm) carbon flat bar, available in four different decal color options.

    Wrap the ends in tape ( Masking or blue painters tape) mark your cuts ( measure twice or three times, remember if you want them a 1" shorter, thats only a 1/2 off each end) Use a fine metal blade on a hack saw, take your time and go slow. The tape keeps it from splintering. But I say ride them wide for a at least a few rides before cutting. The control of a wider bar is awesome. 27" is narrow in my book.
    Enjoy every ride!
