    Sunrise bar reviews

    Looking for reviews on this bar.

    Im looking at this bar for my new Krampus as I like a high stack. Itíll be a rigid SS build and Iím used to riding a carbon bar.

    I have them on my Big Fat Dummy. I also like a high stack, and these are awesome bars. Thinking of picking up another for my Specialized Fatboy.

    Hey racefit, I just ordered this bar for my Krampus. They're high and wide, just how I like it. I've been searching for the perfect setup for a while. I will let you know what I think after a quick ride early next week sometime.

    I've had them on my SS '11 KM for a couple of months now and love them. Ive Got a bad neck and like to be a bit more upright. Testing a new ICT now and i may give them a whirl on that.

    Quick ride last night with the new sunrise bars. Exactly what I was looking for. Wide and high. I too have neck issues, so I'm hoping these will help mitigate the issue. I'm going to order another pair for my Mukluk. Once I get more time on them I can give a little better feedback. Happy trails

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Iíd like to hear how they feel as far as stiffness, especially compared to a carbon bar. Also if you cut them and to what length.

    I have this bar on my Cross-Check set up as a singlespeed and love it. Really enjoy the more upright position and my wrist pain/hand numbness issues are gone. Can't speak to carbon bars, but I was going to cut back the bar to about 780mm or so but didn't get around to it, for which I'm happy as I've come to really prefer the stock width. Tried a BMX stem to avoid the shims and it happened to work out well.

    It's a Salt AM Top Load. Got it for $19 at Universal and has worked great with the Sunrise. No shims needed.

    I was looking at the profile Mulville stem.

    The Salt looks similar, just slightly heavier. 1/3 the price of the Profile.

    Any idea on differences?

    I didn't cut them, the wider the better for me. Also, can't give much feed back vs. carbon bars. I haven't ridden carbon bars in years. They feel pretty stout so far. Only thing I wonder about is why they used such a small diameter clamp area?

    I was wondering the same thing.

    My guess is the thinner tubing offsets the stiffening properties of the crossbar.

    Could be, but my guess is that it is just due to reasonable manufacturing constraints. There must be a good number of factories making steel handlebars with 22.2mm clamp areas because that is common for bmx as well as older and entry-level dirtbikes. It's the same diameter as the grip area so no special equipment is needed to swage the tubes to different diameters or wall thicknesses... just a good bender
