We went a bit wild with the Left Bank handlebar's design. It is a full 49cm wide, 7cm wider than a traditional French bar, but still narrower that many British/American-style bars. The grips flare outward a bit to appeal to the less restrained cyclist. Given its radical nature it can only be named the Left Bank handlebar, after that section of Paris, the Latin Quarter on the left bank of the Seine, that was historically populated by students and leftist philosophers.

The stem clamp diameter is 25.4mm and is bulged, rather than sleeved, so it will not squeak. Reach is about 18cm and the rise is 7 cm. Grip area length is 16cm. Polished alloy.

These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road-sized and 22.2mm mountain bike-sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both):

  • 22.2mm (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size.
  • 23.8mm (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard bar-end shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.

Ideal for Multiple Hand Positions

I've replaced the drops on two vintage touring bikes with this bar, Tektro RX4.1 inverse levers and Tektro RL720 cross levers. Strongly recommend.

Just right for my situation

A Surly Cross Check frame has a somewhat short Stack height which works fine with drop bars but I ride in a semi-upright position and the 7cm rise of the Left Bank bars not only compensates for the short Stack but also has about 4cm more of pullback reach than my favorite Velo Orange Porteur bars have.

Super cruiser bars for my commute

I love them. Narrow but not too. Easily fits my shifters, brakes and a bell.

I just put them on an All City Space Horse and it made it a beautiful city cruiser pack animal.
