Kalloy Tourist Handle-bar review and pics....

this my 1st time posting links so i hope this works:


Installed these Kalloy Tourist handlebars on my trusty old Specialized Rockhopper and ive been testing them about a week in the city of L.A.
Kalloy Tourist handlebar to me looks like a “north-roads” style handlebar, and it reminds me of those old Raleigh 3speed handlebars. Super comfy with a more upright position which IMO is a very important safety feature for commuting, because you have much better/wider vision in this position. These bars go for $16 online, much cheaper than Nitto handlebars that look similar. I would NOT use these off-road but i think they are plenty strong for city use. These bars measure 56cm at the ends and have 50mm of rise - all measured center-to-center. Clamp diameter of 25.4mm but they needed a custom spacer to fit my Rockhopper stem. Accepts mountain bike style shifters and brake levers.
