These style bars were standard issue on Porteur bicycles - and for good reason! They're maneuverable, lightweight, and exceptionally comfortable for riding through the city and country with heavy loads.
- Width: 48cm
- Reach: 14cm
- Grip area: 13cm
- Rise/drop: 15mm
- Stem clamp area: 25.4mm
These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm for road components and 22.2mm for mtb/city components:
- 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.
Used these in the road size to convert an old Trek 400 to a city cruiser. The more upright position doesn’t strain the back as much and somehow doesn’t seem to reduce power either! I like the ability to put bar ends on in the future if needed. Highly recommended overall.
Wanted a shorter reach, more casual bar for my single speed commuter bike. This worked perfectly.
These handlebars are sexy AF. On the narrower side and comfortable for folks looking for an upright riding posture. Highly recommend!
A timeless bar that's home on many, many bike builds. Sportier than most upright bars but still great for bike baskets and porteur racks. My only complaint albeit small is that I wish they were slightly wider (I'm tall and broad shouldered).
