    Looking for unconventional handlebars

    Hey there,

    I'm looking for a pair of BMX-style riser bars, preferably with a crossbrace.

    I need about a 3.5-4.5" of rise, and a width of over 24" (600mm)

    Does such a thing exist?

    I've seen the Redline Flite Jnr Cruiser bars but no info about how wide they are. Something like them would be perfect if wide enough.

    Did you check my suggestion?

    Yup.

    I e-mailled Thick Bikes too for a quote. Not sure I want to spend 500 bucks on a set of custom forks and bars though, especially for a project this silly.

    Hey, I'm open to suggestions, that's why I posted this.

    Can't find any reference to those S&M bars, or is it a 'A Sphincter says what' joke?

    Oh, and you can't just say something is crap without justifying it. I know it's the Internet and all, but that's how it works in real life. What's so bad about Thick? Not enough 'Mission Brown'?

    They changed the name. Here's the copy/paste from S&M's site.

    5.75" Cruiser Bar

    Handlebar formerly known as the Gay Bar.

    Width: 27.5"
    Rise: 5.75"
    Sweep: 10 degree
    Up Sweep: 2.5 degree
    Cross Bar: .875"
    Weight: 1 lb 15.5 oz (1.97 lbs) : 893 grams
    For comparisons with various companies we've listed 3 different units of weight: Pounds with ounces, Pounds in Decimal form, and Grams.


    100% 4130 chromoly construction
    Precision mitered crossbar tube ends
    TIG welded construction
    No ripples or kinks in the bends
    Deep knurling for slip-free mounting
    Deburred bar ends
    Durable powdercoated paint finish
    Too tall for your likes, I suppose, but they also have a 5" version, and if you run a drop stem, it probably won't be that off of what you're looking for.

    Look at their frames. Pictures say a thousand words.

    Tiger might know a thing or two about frames, but he's looking for bars. Contact someone from BMX Australia - they'll hook you up.
