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.

Have purchased both sizes-I like ‘em. Multiple hand positions and good looks. Tilt them like the old porteur racers in Paris. Make sure you match size (dia) to the brake levers you want to use.🤪
These bars are really comfortable in the upright position, but I was hoping they'd have a better feel leaning forward as though it's a flat bar. I also can't help but feel like they'll snag my leg if I crash.
I do not ride dropped down or upright but sort of in-between, a vertically balanced position not needing hands for support, and with an 80mm stem this Porteur handlebar puts my hands in the right place on the bike and just where I want them to be. This handlebar is made for all-day riding comfort and control.
Great for city riding. I turned my Boone into a daily driver. I was able to use Sram Level LT levers w/hinged clamps on the 23.8 mm bars with a little help from my friend Dremel. I wanted a bar end shifter so I made it work.
I was picky about bars and spent a long time researching — these are exactly what I was looking for and don't disappoint. I love that they have a slight drop rather than a rise (though you could technically flip it), and that they’re narrower than the typical swept-back style bar. Very reasonable price, to boot!
