Kickstarter: BarBumps Let You Customize Your Handlebar Shape
BarBumps is a simple new product that lets you add hand support where you want, making your road drop handlebars more comfortable.
Shown above under the tape, small “bumps” fit against round bars to create larger perches for your mitts. They’re grooved underneath to fit over cable housing, and work on both the straight sections and the outer curve of the bend. They zip tie to the bar and have small recesses to hide the zip tie knuckle. The Kickstarter project is from designer and cyclist Shawn Littrell, whose goal is to keep all production, packaging and everything else local to Grand Rapids, Michigan. As little as $20 gets you a two-pack, but early backers can get a four-pack for just $5 more.
