    Spike-end flat handlebars: what brand are they?

    Does anyone know the company that makes the flat handlebars with pointy tips at the ends? I believe they're chrome plated. Thank you!

    Unless they're made of foam they're a terrible idea.

    But to find what you're looking for, check out a lowrider bicylcle catalog. No joke.

    ok hipsters don't get your panties in a bunch, google aint helping me so maybe you can

    Completely flat bar (zero rise obviously), the ends are pointed tips. I saw some new reviews for these a few weeks ago but forgot to see the manufacturer.

    Yeah, I forget the name now too. I think they were called "car scratchers" or something like that. And they're just bar ends, not bars.

    edit: Google search brought up these.

    I'm not saying it's a terrible fashion statement, I just think it's dumb to make a bike deadlier. I've already been impaled twice and gashed my leg open a few times (sharkbite scars!) without having components that were intentionally sharpened.

    that's a stupid idea for any bike you're actually going to ride.

    Does anyone know what brand of dynamite is sized to be compatible as a seatpost? I saw SuperDave do something like this on the interweb and forgot to link the site.

    p.s. prefer maroon dynamite.

    Thanks!

    Ah yes the "carscratcher" product is similar, but it's not a bar-end, it's an entire handlebar with similar ends pre-fabricated and non-removable. The cheapo specialized flat bars I have are starting to make a creaky noise which is freaking me out so I'm looking for a heavy duty handlebar to replace them before the bars snap in two and I impale myself on the stem.

    so, instead, you'd prefer to impale yourself on the bar ends the first time you crash?

    Whether you get hit by a semi-sharp point or a blunt point, don't you think you're going to be hurting afterward either way?

    Does any company make a cheap, flat bar? The design seemed simple and easy (and hopefully reasonably priced). The only flat bars out there seem to be carbon fiber, expensive and easily breakable. Oh also a magnet for theft.

    "Blunt point"--oxymoron??

    Hmmm---if i had a choice of smashing into a blunt object or being impaled on a sharp object---i'll take the blunt trauma everyday and twice on sundays
