Way-cool Wald bars

Some of you probably know this already, but Wald 8095 handlebars can dress up/make comfortable many a commuter bike. Check them out!

Somehow I can't believe Wald is still made in Maysville. My hometown!

"Fortunately for all of us it makes for a less-nerdly picture." That refers to not wearing a helmet while cycling. Who are you calling a nerd?

I think the ones on my bike are similar, but not swept back quite as much. They work for me.

Cool. They look a lot like the Nitto North Roads I got for my wife's hybrid. The straight bars were killing her wrists and they were just the ticket. I like how they look "upside-down". Has that old-timey scorcher look.

I was going to pick up some Soma Sparrows, but I think I'll get these instead for like 1/4th the price!

The new basket on the Wald site is made in China.

So, does that mean the last USA bike parts manufacturer (of items that don't require taking out a loan) is beginning to move operations?
