Handlebar ?

The H Bar

Has anyone toured or even have one of these handlebars?

Your opinion?

It looks comfortable and quite versatile for all kinds of accessories in the cockpit.

Ha actually just got one, absolutely love it so far. Great alternative to drops imo. Jensonusa has em for 59$ You can also consider a butterfly or trekking bar if you don't want to spend $59

I've seen them around, and except for the front bit, they look pretty much like old style Northbars, which I love. But then again, I'm getting on, and I find I do prefer a more sedate sit up and beg position.

My commuter bike has a Dimension trekking bar; it's similar to the H-loop, but 27.5X less expensive ($20 vs $550). I find that my 3T Ergosum drop bars have more hand positions that work for me. I do like the fact that the grips sweep back; makes the bar more comfortable than a standard flat handlebar. Haven't tried the Titec version of the Jeff Jones bar, but I'd start with that before investing $500+ in one of the titanium models...
