Cheap, tough, wide bars?
“Light. Strong. Cheap, pick two”?
I’m picking Cheap and Strong
Looking for 680mm+ wide (700mm would be nice)
Plenty of rise, 50mm at least.
To slap on front of t’Pitch with the 40mm Hussefelt stem I’ve just accuired, to chuck down an Alp or three…..

Reverse 710 bars are nice and light, DH strong and cheapish. Very pleased with mine.Posted 11 years ago
Easton Havocs are pretty tidy.Posted 11 years ago
Nice try thanks chaps, but I don’t call £60 for the Eastons or £46 for the Reverse cheap by an means. Stoner is closest so far…..Posted 11 years ago
EA30,s? Cheap, strong and 685mm wide.Posted 11 years ago
You’re not going to get a lot cheaper than those truvativs.Posted 11 years ago
Running a Holzfeller Bar and Stem that I got from Merlin for a bonkers package price of £30 – not sure if they’re still doing it but the bar is surprisingly light for it’s strength…Posted 11 years ago
In fact Stoner linked to the one I have – so Merlin pretty much gave me the stem free then – nice!Posted 11 years ago
I got my 50mm rise ones off eBay for 20 quid. ATC have ’em for 25, OS is only 685mm though.
Some decent deals here:
A nice (?) white one at 15 quid. Not sure if there is enough rise for you on any of these ones tho.Posted 11 years ago
This is what I call cheap…..
But has anybody used any?

Azonic single wall or double wall depending on what you mean by tough. reduced on crc at the moment
used double walls on my full suss and singlespeed and they are properly toughPosted 11 years ago
Kore BFD bars. 710mm wide, plenty tough, 325 grams… £22 off crc. Though tbh I’d spend another £20 and save 100 grams or so.Posted 11 years ago
Just bolt a bit of scaffold tube to yer bike.
You might want to reinforce it with concrete inside, mind, just to be on the safe side… 😉Posted 11 years ago
Stoner, thanks but nowhere near wide enough!

But you’re talking to someone who smashes frames and components with monotonous regularity, and I’ll be spending 5 days throwing myself down various Alps for the first time, and dragged back up on a chairlift. Sod the weight, I’ll put my standard Spesh bars back on when I get home.
