How to Use Bicycle Accessories : How to Choose Bike Handlebars


JEFF COOK: Hello, and I am Jeff Cook from
All Seasons Sports, here today to talk to you about some of the latest and greatest
and some of the coolest stuff for bikes on behalf of Expert Village. Hi! It’s Jeff again,
and I’m here to talk about low bars today. This is one of the areas that we can drop
some weight off the bike. We can also add some comfort to what we’re doing. One of the
names that’s very popular and very big in this would be Easton. Easton knows carbon
whether we’re talking about aeros or whether we’re talking about handlebars. They’ve been
making products like this now for quite some time. This is a full carbon fiber bar with
an integrated flat spot for hand to give us support as well as a different angle here
to be ergonomically correct for our hands. Something like this would be under 240 grams
so it can be a big weight savings to the bike and as I mention before, it can really add
to the comfort and enjoyment of your ride. Today, we’re going to talk about carbon fiber
bar for your mountain bikes. So this again can be a good upgrade for you. A chance to
drop some weight, actually increase straight off that area which you really want to start
in one if you’re going to be mountain biking off road, and also add a little bit more comfort
to your ride. This bar can be in the neighborhood of 150 grams, so you can even drop some good
weight from your bike but not sacrifice any strength. It’s made by Easton and it’s a fine
product.
