    Couldn’t afford any actual bikes after getting that lot then Stu?

    I prefer the simplicity of running round holding a bar instead of having to maintain all the moving parts on a bike. 😛

    ah well, nice to have a selection available so you can pick the apprpriate one for the prevailing weather and ground conditions then.

    Cheers Stu – post me the top one and I’ll try it on a bike and let you know what it’s like 😆

    I take it you run singlespeed so no need to trouble yourself with anything other than brakes then?

    Cheers – now I’ll have to look at the Jones version too!!! 🙄

    The original H Bar is kind of tricky to run shifters on.

    I use thumb shifters on the rare occasions i use gears with them.

    The Loop Bar is much easier to use gears with though.

    Got twist shifters on this ATM but anything would fit.

    The longer rear extension on the loop bar gives you a lot more room to mount shifters.

    if you want titec bars, grab ’em fast as madison are now out and i hear Jeff’s not re-licesing the titec bar design to them…

    chain reaction bought a few recently, maybe they heard the news.

    if anyone has a ti H bar for sale i can offer a good price or many ‘shimano credits’ )

    Stu whats the cost of the ali loop bar when you factor in the shipping etc?

    I see Mr Jones sells the at $120 for the ali version but there is the additional on costs to consider

    cheers

    Or you can get the new alloy loop bar either direct from Jeff or here in the UK from Biff for quite a reasonable price…

    Oh and I “might” have one of the original Ti ones for sale.

    yeah, been talking to Biff about a few things recently ) and the loop looks like a better bet, agreed. just a PSA on the titecs. if there’s a ti one for sale, mail me – @genesisbikes.co.uk">enquiries@genesisbikes.co.uk fao james – no rush as i have a titec for now but there’s a curly bike on order and it would finish it off nicely.

    Stu – can you give me a pointer in the direction of Biff and his alloy loop bar supplies in the UK – where would I be going on the net to find them? Google is not my friend this evening! Cheers

    EDIT – Got it – will email him… thanks for the idea
