    Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

    I didn't realize that I needed a 31.8mm clamp to fit my stem. I was guided to a source for shims but decided that I wanted a heavier bar for touring. This bar is very light and seems somewhat spindly but it was nicely finished. Seems 24mm clamp bars are common in N. A. although my bike is an American made bike.

    Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

    Purchased these for a touring bike build-up. Like the price, shape and versatility, but the tubing is a little on the thin side and doesn't feel very substancial even with bar tape. Only other gripe is the "grip section" is inadequate to accomodate grips, brake levers and shift levers before the bar curves. Finsh is good and the bar functions fine.

    Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

    Got these to replace flat handlebars on a hybrid. Turning the bike into a multiple day touring ride to do 2 to 3 day rides. These give several extra ways to place your hands. Only low point is that I would like the bars slightly wider.

    Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

    I added these bars to an 1990 Trek MB which I use for exercise. I also put aero bars on the setup. This setup gives me a comfortable riding position on my 15 mile morning ride. Moving between the aero bars for cruising and the trekking bars for shifting and braking is easy and quick. I have eliminated the hand numbness that I got with ordinary MB bars.

    The setup might look a little strange, however I find it comfortable.

    I put these bars on a folding travel bike for touring. Love the variety of hand postions. Immediately felt much more comfortable than the previous flat bars.

        My first set of trekking bars. They are exactly what I hoped . I'm a heavy guy and they are strong, no flexing. Looked at other brands but these are perfect. Hands placement is limitless. Nasbar has a great price too. Wayne

          Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

          I wanted to alter my sturdy steed to a fully loaded touring bike. Flat bars numbed my hands in an hour or so. With these bars i can put in hours and hours with no problem. While grinding up hills i switch to the top-sides and find it very comfortable. I did add a little extra padding before tapeing though. They are lightweight and offer lots of versatlity. They are skinny though so you may have to add a bit of tape to add extras like lights etc.

          I was initially confused by the lack of instructions but found that it could be positioned and configured in many ways. It gives me grip variety and comfort for my old rigid Stumpy.

            Comments about Nashbar Trekking Mountain Bike Handlebar:

            I ordered these as an upgrade to the straight bars that came stock on my Specialized Sirrus Hybrid Bike. All I have to say is WOW! What an improvement! They arrived the other day in the mail, and at first I was disappointed, because they were a bit smaller and narrower than I pictured here on the website. But the size is deceiving, they are the perfect width over the wider straight bars. In fact they gave me better control over steering, and handle a lot better on the single track and rail trail that I take to work every day, and give the steering more authority on pavement at speed. I was also able to keep my stock ergonomic grips, I had to cut holes in the ends to accommodate them to the reverse mounting. My brake/shift levers fit well, and the best part is that the lower part of the bars helps me sit up a little better when cruising along, helping my lower back! When it's windy or if I am on a long stretch of road, I can stretch out my arms and hands and still be in control of the bike. Probably the best $25 I've spent thus far! If you don't have a set of these on your bike, you are definitely missing something out of your life!

            Needs more space for adding gear to the bars. Had to cut Ergon grips to make fit before the bend.
