What kind of Handlebars do I need?

John October 28, 2011 0

With fixed gear bikes, and any bike for that matter, there are a lot of different options you can go with for your handlebars…there are a couple of different styles, so hopefully this will clear up some of advantages and disadvantages of certain styles of handlebars.  First off, the riser handlebar…this is a flat bar, a nearly-straight tube, slightly bent toward the rider…these are what you see all the fixed gear freestyle and street dudes using…these kinds of handlebars are pretty tight if you’re trying to learn tricks and are doing more trick oriented riding.  Riser bars aren’t meant for long distance riding, more so short distances and messing around on flatground or at the park.

The last style of handlebars for fixed gear bikes we are going to talk about are track drop handlebars, or drop handlebars.  This style of handlebar may have a shallow or deep drop…I see these kinds of handlebars a lot but they are actually pretty uncomfortable unless you are really accustomed to this style…takes some getting used to for sure.
