how much backsweep?!
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.
[...] You can see the bars on my bike here [...]
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?
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?
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.
