    Do you recognize these handlebars?

    mystery bar 1.jpgI received these bars second hand a couple of years ago. They laid around the garage until recently when I installed them on my Dahon Speed TR. They are a great alternative to a flat bar as they offer multiple hand positions. I have been looking for a second set for a Bike Friday Tikit. Unfortunately I do not know the mfg or model. I have been browsing some of the bigger web based bike parts retailers but have not found them.

    Any idea on who makes them and where I could get another?mystery bar 2.jpg

    Looks like a Hsin Lung handlebar design from the days when integrated bar ends and flat bars were considered a good thing. They followed after the Scott AT series of bars and seem to have been effectively replaced by butterfly bars.

    I should have mentioned that they are steel and originally painted black. Thanks for the response. I was hoping they were still made The butterfly / trekking bar was what I will get if I don't find these.

    Many Distributors get the Figure 8 bend butterfly bars, all coming in at around $20 in the US..
    IDK could all be coming from same factory, 'Pac Rim'..
