"A few trips ago I couldn’t imagine riding a bike without road handlebars. But after 4000km+ on the Crazy Bars, I have zero intention of switching back." Find the full review of our Crazy Bars on CyclingAbout here.
These bars are intended for touring on paved and unpaved roads. They are also ideal for gravel grinding. The main section of the bar is pretty wide at 67cm and provides good control on rough surfaces and around town. The bullhorn section offers a streamlined position for smoother roads and headwinds. The center portion replicates the top of a drop bar, and placing your hands at the junctions is not unlike riding on the hoods.
The main bar is 22.2mm so MTB grips, levers, and shifters fit. The "horns" are 23.8mm, so road levers - including inverse levers - fit, as do bar-end shifters. Clamp area is 25.4mm.
Crazy Bars are made from 6061 aluminum and are heat treated. Weight is pretty reasonable at around 450g. These are rated for touring/gravel not singletrack.
