Velo Orange’s New Crazy Bars Preview

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

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.
