The Granola Bar is our take on a traditional city and touring bar while retaining elegant lines and curves that is often lost in many of today's modern offerings. Width is a cool 650mm and rise is generous at 30mm. With 60 degrees worth of sweep, you'll have a fairly upright position with a ton of control. At 180mm in length, the grip area is more than enough for modern sized grips, brake levers, and shifters. The clamp diameter is 31.8mm and the grip diameter is 22.2mm.

I own the curvy bar as well, it is well made though is not enough upright for my liking, as the bike frame is quite big for my size. The granola bar puts me right in the sweet spot, I really enjoy it.
Wish I could throw a bar end shifter on them. Wanted something in black close to the albatross bar. I definitely got that but now I need to buy a Paul thumbie adapter to make it work.
As a handle bar they are comfy, and ordering from VO is always a pleasure.
This bar has the perfect width; enough to carry a big bag or basket on the front that you can stuff with all of your favorite granola bar flavors like chocolate chip and/or peanut butter. I bought this bar to replace a drop bar on an old steel frame road bike and it is fantastic. It props you up nice and tall and is extremely comfortable. Very classy!
Put these on your bike, particularly a 650B around-towner, put a crawler in your mojave cage. Cruise around town have fun. These handlebars are great.
