Velo Orange’s New Crazy Bars

Velo Orange’s New Crazy Bars

Velo Orange’s Crazy Bars have a cult following ranging from commuters to tourers and everything in between. These bars give you the benefit of a riser bar’s riding position with the option for a more aero hand placement. Sure, they look… uhh… crazy but that’s their name, right? For this round, VO widened the bar to 780mm and the sweep has been reduced to a more comfortable 35º. The horns also got massaged by shortening them to 110mm for an overall better riding experience. See more details and on-the-bike photos at Velo Orange.

Curve Cycling’s New Remlaw Bar is a Flat Bar for Drop Bar Bikes

Curve Cycling’s New Remlaw Bar is a Flat Bar for Drop Bar Bikes

Straya’s Curve Cycling knows if you put standard flat bars on a drop-bar bike it drastically shortens your reach and adversely affects the handling of the bike. That’s why they designed and developed the Remlaw Bar, which is designed to match the same reach and handling properties of a drop bar. With 12° of sweep-back, hand positioning remains similar to that when using the hoods on a drop bar.

Whisky Parts Co: New Milhouse Carbon Moto and Winston Mustache Bars

Moné Bikes: Help Fund this Carbon Riser Bar Dubbed the “Light Bar”

Want a riser bar with a classic cross-brace but also want your bike to weigh less? Enter the Light Bar.

These carbon bars have a 31.8 Clamp. 2.5” of rise, 827mm wide, and 12º of backsweep. That’s a bit less rise and sweep than Moné’s Oddmone, so if you have a similar bar, you can swap the Light Bar in for a some added comfort and less weight.

Moné is making these bars, no question about it but tooling is expensive, so they’re doing a pre-sale to help kick the Light Bar into production. In exchange for your patience, you’ll get wholesale pricing ($239) for a limited time. Presale runs until Saturday, Oct. 24th. The first 30 Light Bar sales will be fast-tracked so you’ll get your bars even sooner.

Rodeo Labs and Cerakote: A Match Made in Hero Dirt

Rodeo Labs and Cerakote: A Match Made in Hero Dirt

It’s no secret that we love earth tone themes over here at the Radavist. Which is why we’ve taken a liking to Cerakote, the durable and thin coating – .5 mil thick! – that is baked on like a powder but at lower temperatures. John’s Sklar’s finish is Cerakote and we’re seeing more and more integration with frames but very few component applications. That’s why this Rodeo Labs project caught our eye. They went extra dirty with this one with the Elite Earth color on everything, including their Rodeo 2.0 rims. Check out more photos below!
