    30 degree sweeps bars? In between Mary and Luv Handle, anybody making one??

    I'm looking for a handlebar with around 30 of sweep, would I have to go custom? Anybody know any production bars?

    I'm worried about snapping my Origin8 space bar (reinforced with a composite fill for now), and kind of think 40 of sweep is a tad much anyway. I was looking at the Groovy Luv Handle, but I'm pretty sure the 21 is just like the Kalloy Dexter I've got on my cargo bike, and it feels like not quite enough.

    I think something right in between would be perfect. So before I start saving my pennies for something custom, anybody know of something I don't?

    One avenue I haven't tried yet, motorcycle shops.

    BOS FloWing - 27deg

    Dimension - 24-deg riser (download their catalog)
    edit: it's available at Speedgoat

    Although I'm not sure if the Dimension is off-road worthy (ByStickel uses the Bonty -- similar to your Dexter -- though).

    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I <3 my Fu bar, planning to get another for my geared bike.

    Now I wish I would've bought one of the 3 packs, I'd have had one for each of my bikes, and could've sold you one at a sweet discount.

    If yo end up going custom, give the folks at Black Sheep a call.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.
