    Jeebus that’s a lot!

    Jones are 45deg, Mary was 37.5deg, Fleegle is 11deg. Or was it 15deg?

    Anyhow. I actually quite like these a lot. They’re a lot wider than previous wiggly bars I’ve done.

    685mm tip to tip, which makes them “effectively” wider still – they feel like my 700′s.

    Less sweep than either of the FUbars. I’ll try and get my hands on a pair.

    how much forward sweep/reach before the back sweep?

    Serious question: what’s the reasoning behind the design of the bars?

  • brant 8:28 am on September 5, 2010 | #

    Paul – it’s to do with a more natural hand position for extended riding, especially whilst seated.

    Thanks – may look into a pair

    I really like bars with a severe backsweep.. to the point where anything under 25 degrees now just feels completely bizarre.. I need a 60mm plus rise though.. any chance of knocking some up for your next wierd bar..?

    I have the geometry dialed on my bike right now and my current bars have a 9 deg. sweep – so my question is: would I need to change the length of my stem to keep my reach the same?

  • brant 6:42 am on January 23, 2011 | #

    No change in stem needed as our forward/backwards wiggle keeps the hands in the same position relative to the stem.

    Thanks – I’m I’m really intrigued and plan on giving these a try.
