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, at a 56 degree backsweep. Polished alloy. Weight: 300g

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.

Just Right

These bars are exactly what I wanted to convert a drop bar bike to up-right bars.

these handle bars handle

the moment i installed the handlebars i had flocks of people coming over admiring them. with expressions like, " who makes those, zeus himself?" , " wow nice fit" " can i ride on your handlebars?", " only a god amongst men would have handlebars like that."
My bike even winked as me, when the last piece of bar tape was applied.

Beautiful handlebars--highly recommmend

I was trying to decide between left bank, porteur, postino, and milan--for my fixed gear commuter bike. I wanted a more upright seat to protect my back and I found it! These are exactly what I wanted and look beautiful.

Perfect for a clapped out road bike with DT shifters

Very comfy

These are great bars that put me in a pleasant upright position, I do wish they were slightly wider or had a little less back sweep and longer grip area but overall made my 80’s Bridgestone more Riv like which was the goal!
