    What handlebar is this?

    Does anyone know what handlebar is on the green commuter bike (with orange head tube) in this article?

    I've been looking for a silver, 0-rise, ~45-degree bend bar, that ideally fits MTB parts. The closest I found was the Velo Orange Postino, but that wouldn't fit shifters and brake levers and my hands. Whatever bar is in that photo seems to be long enough to fit all the mechanical bits plus grips.

    E-mail Eric, I' sure that he'll be glad to let you know exactly what bar it is.

    I don't know if the Surly Open Bar was ever available in silver, but it is only made in black now.

    I Googled Mary Poppins bar but I suspect Mountain Cycle Shawn was just trying to say it looks like the bar Mary Poppins used as there doesn't seem to be a readily Googleable handlebar of that name.

    I'm going to guess it's a Velo Orange hbar. Possibly the Postino.

    VO Postino Handlebar - Handlebars - Components

    Go ahead and look through the Velo Orange site, lost of good retro-y parts.

    Ahhh, a quick look back to the original post and you have found that option... skim guilty, whoops. I still that's the bar in the pic of the commuter though. There's a pic of the bar in that link with shifters, levers and grips. So is the bar just not wide enough?

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    It's possible that it is actually a Postino. Maybe whatever shifters and brake levers they mounted take up less handlebar real estate than mine do, allowing for the installation of grips. When I had the Postino, I just couldn't make it work. Running an FSA Metropolis now--plenty of real estate but it's not zero-rise, which I think just looks better.
