German prototype handlebars


WOW! I've always liked BMX risers but the profile is usually too wide for polo. Even when cut down the bended section/crossbar pushes the brake further out then I'd like. With this ingenious design they eliminate the crossbar altogether and weld on an inner mount specifically for the brake lever! Brilliant. I'm assuming they're steel and they look to have a 4-inch rise. Hopefully the German boys making these will move beyond prototypes and into production. Or at least make enough so i get one!
