While they may look a bit odd compared to the traditional handlebar, Jeff Jones’ H-Bar have a number of devoted fans across the world. Why? The 45 degree sweep of the bars offers a natural feeling hand position that some riders prefer. The first H-Bar was a three piece design that Jeff created after holding out tubes while on a bike that had no bars. The 45 degree position felt the most natural so he went with it, and the H-Bar was born. The original H-Bar was built in steel, Cro-moly, then Titanium and eventually gained curved forward extensions for better ergonomics and the OS 31.8 clamp size. Next came the Loop H-Bar which offered even more hand positions, mounting positions, and a stiffer bar. Getting back to the basics, the Bend H-Bar offers the same 45 degree sweep of the originals, but in a minimal, light weight package that is easier to mount shifters and some levers.
