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.

Just the bars I was looking for. Great conversion of a old 10 speed into a person about town bike.
I have three sets of these and they are like road bars but without the drops. Porteur bikes have a working-class history and these bars show it, offering not just one or two but three, four or five comfortable choices of hand positions. Indeed, these bars could require experimenting with a few different stem lengths before settling on just the right length, and of about shoulder width, shoulders, arms and hands stay in about their most relaxed positions. These bars have a long history which has been finely developed, tested and proven.
I am very upset that someone stole my parcel. everyone be careful
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.
