What are handlebars?
The handlebar is your means of steering your bike. It’s also the useful perch for all your accessories, like lights, computer and bar bag.
Who needs handlebars?
Handlebars are an essential component of any bike, unless you’re an unicyclist. You’ll probably choose an upgrade because you fancy trying a different bar width or shape.
What are the choices?
The main choices are drop handlebars for road-type bikes and flat or riser bars for hybrids and mountain bikes. Remember if you want to go for a dramatic change of bar shape, you may need to get new compatible parts, like brake and gear levers or a stem to make the conversion work.
What should I buy with them?
You can complement your new handlebar with a new set of grips or fresh bar tape, for a perfect finished look.
If you’re not sure what width of flat handlebar you’re comfortable with, remember you can always cut it down a little with a hacksaw. Carbon bars may require special equipment to do this though.
