Is wider better? I’d say so! While mountain bikes have embraced the wider bar trend, there’s still a lot of resistance to wider bars on drop bar bikes. Part of that is it costs a lot to try it out. Well, with the rising popularity of wider drop bars, more and more companies are throwing their caps in the ring with the latest being PNW Components and their Coast handlebar and stem. These affordable bars offer up a new riding position for that old familiar gravel or cross bike in your stable. They come in a silver finish and are in stock now, in two widths – 480mm and 520mm – at PNW Components.
-65mm Reach – Works with shallow drop and exaggerated flare to make switching body position an ease
-105mm Drop – Shallow Drop for when aero isn’t everything and comfort is
-20° Flare – Combo of shallow drop and 20° flare provides more wrist comfort while moving back and forth between grips and hoods
