The VO Crazy Bars are intended for touring on paved and unpaved roads, single and double track, gravel and crushed limestone, and everything in between.

The main, swept back section provides excellent control and leverage on rough and tumble surfaces, while the the bullhorn section offers an aero position for smoother roads and headwinds. The junction of the horns and sweeps feels similar to being on the hoods of drop bars and makes for a nice, neutral position.

The main bar uses a 22.2mm grip area so MTB grips, levers, and shifters fit. The "horns" are 23.8mm, so road components like bar ends and inverse levers are compatible. The stem clamp area is 31.8mm.

Crazy Bars are made from 6061 aluminum and are heat treated. Weight is a reasonable 532g. They are MTB-rated and available in sand-blasted Silver and Noir.

Crazy Bars...Crazy Good

Very comfortable bars!

Resistance is futile!

I've resisted the move to anything but drop bars for way too long, admittedly because I love how drops look and nothing else. My last trip (and my neck) taught me it's time to change. I took months to research alt bars and landed on Crazy Bars, thinking I'd give them a try. My first big trip with these is in just a few weeks, but after a month of commuting with them, all I can say is "why did I wait so long?" I love my Crazy Bars!

Comfortable, Wide, and Too Thick

The bars are comfortable and I like the extra hand position, but are very thick walled, 3.3mm, and have a small inner diameter, 15.6mm, compared to an aluminum MTB bar at 1.3mm thick and inner diameter 19.6mm. Good luck getting a bar end plug or mirror to fit unless you force it in or core the ends out. I trimmed my down a bit as I found them quite wide at 5'9".

Living up to the name

I used to ride a wide Salsa cow chipper on a urban bike with 25s (slowly getting into fatter tires), but at 6’4” my back and neck would kill me after I hit the 20+ mile mark. The crazy bars provide a super comfortable and wide default position for getting sporty, and the bull horns are always there for hunkering in for some speed or wind dodging. If I was any shorter I’d probably cut down the width, but absolutely love these things after the first 100+ miles on em, highly recommended. Also spectacularly comfortable for cranking uphill. They certainly draw some funny looks but they keep me in the saddle for way longer which is all that matters.

Genius Bars

Just did a 100 mile gravel race in the mountains with these. Verdict: these things are totally awesome!! My new favorite bar.

The increase in pedaling efficiency when on the bullhorns is very noticeable. I would have to shift up one or twice before transitioning from the flat bars to the bullhorns or else I’d start to spin out, though it didn’t feel like I was pedaling any harder.

You can absolutely rip on the downs when on the flatbar section. I was keeping up with hard tail and full suspension XC bikes on my gravel bike, leaving folks riding their traditional drop bars in the dust. I didn’t think I’d like the back sweep on these, but I was very wrong. It’s comfortable and natural.

Transitioning between the two riding positions takes a little practice to get used to, but eventually it feels just as natural as roaming around on drop bars. To those who say they’re too wide: cut them. I took an inch off each side with a hacksaw, took about 5 minutes. LBS would do this for you too if you don’t have a means to cut them.
