    Mezzo 'comfort handlebar' question

    Anyone know what the specs are for this and where I might get one in the UK? It appears to be have a 50mm rise or thereabouts. . . it ought to be lighter than a DH bar and might be handy for me.

    Not sure what you are looking for, but when I needed a new part for my Mezzo, I rang ATB. They told me the cost and recommended a dealer near me that could order it: they don't sell direct to public.

    hope this helps.

    I might give that a go. I've seen it listed as 'comfort handlebar' in bike specs; it appears to be the standard handlebar AFAICS.

    Never trust the advice of a Mezzo owner

    Brompton like to hand-build their bikes with the cheapest far-eastern components conceivable.

    Actually, that's probably a lie, they may well be the cheapest european components conceivable.

    Anyhow, I'm struggling with finding a handlebar setup that works properly for me and I just realised the Mezzo bar might provide a solution.
