Think it must be the angle of the photo. Stooge Moto bars. Not too much back sweep, nice rise and super wide. I like them. A lot.

Nice commute!

Like how you managed to photoshop some blue into the sky :P

LOL. Must try harder to make sure my photos reflect the seasons a bit better!

I've been looking at those on CTBMs site.

I want the Jones bars but they're nowt special for the money. The loop would be handy for my barbag but paying top dollar for something that adds weight to a fat bike seems sooooo wrong.

My OG bars may be on the verge of breaking. I think it was when they fell off a cliff :facepalm:

Hmmm... They look good. I have bar ends mounted inboard:

and find the resulting hand position better than on 'H-bars'.

Righty.......

phoned Alpkit and they are selling their fu manchu bars (like the jones loops) but they aren't putting them live on the website yet. They are selling them though :thumbsup:

2 bars ordered

only £35 a bar!!!!!!!!!!!

Get in now if you want one.



Phil, link is working. That's how I've been running my other bars but I haven't settled comfy with the ergon bar end grips.

Those bars look good. What's the overall width and the length of tube available for controls at each end, if you don't mind me asking?

approx. 18cm to the weld, can't be exact unless I peel my grips off.

No worries. Those are slicks aren't they, so it must be for road use.

I'd say that it's not often that a bike that pointless appears.
