    Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

    It took Al of thirty seconds for me to realize I loved this bar. I've been looking at it online for two years and am so glad I finally ordered it. Provides me at least three different comfortable hand positions and took very little time to set up. Changing the angle can make a very big difference so it's not a bad idea to play around with it a little right at first. Definitely a must buy for anyone riding any kind of real distance.

      I use this bar on my Bike Friday New World Tourist and found it to be a great shaped bar with many comfortable hand positions also the price is hard to beat.

        Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

        I put these handlebars and skinny tires on my old mountain bike to use on a 200 mile road tour. I've had issues with hand numbness before and these bars are great to allow many different hand positions. I mounted the bars upside down from the photo shown but you can see which way feels best. I wrapped most of the bars with cushioned tape.

          Installed these on my Surley LHT. Had these on my Novara Randonee also. Mine are double wrapped for comfort. They are much more comfortable and versatile than drop bars. Try them once, and you'll stop making fun of them...

            Cons

            • Didn't Fit

            • Otherwise Nice Bar
            • Passed Up The Clamp Shims
            • Returned Product
            • The Clamp Is Only 254 Mm

            Best Uses

            • More Hand Positions

            • Upgrade

            Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

            I didn't realize that I needed a 31.8mm clamp to fit my stem. I was guided to a source for shims but decided that I wanted a heavier bar for touring. This bar is very light and seems somewhat spindly but it was nicely finished. Seems 24mm clamp bars are common in N. A. although my bike is an American made bike.

            Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

            Purchased these for a touring bike build-up. Like the price, shape and versatility, but the tubing is a little on the thin side and doesn't feel very substancial even with bar tape. Only other gripe is the "grip section" is inadequate to accomodate grips, brake levers and shift levers before the bar curves. Finsh is good and the bar functions fine.

            Got these to replace flat handlebars on a hybrid. Turning the bike into a multiple day touring ride to do 2 to 3 day rides. These give several extra ways to place your hands. Only low point is that I would like the bars slightly wider.

            Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

            I added these bars to an 1990 Trek MB which I use for exercise. I also put aero bars on the setup. This setup gives me a comfortable riding position on my 15 mile morning ride. Moving between the aero bars for cruising and the trekking bars for shifting and braking is easy and quick. I have eliminated the hand numbness that I got with ordinary MB bars.

            The setup might look a little strange, however I find it comfortable.

            I put these bars on a folding travel bike for touring. Love the variety of hand postions. Immediately felt much more comfortable than the previous flat bars.
