Mountain bike handlebars

Road bike handlebars are the steering mechanism for bicycles. Besides steering,
handlebars also often support some of the rider's weight based on their riding
position, and provide a handy mounting place for brake levers, shift levers,

bells, etc. Cheap

Handlebars attach to a bike's stem which in
turn attaches to the fork.

The design goals of handlebars varies
according to the intended use of the bicycle. There are various bicycle
handlebar types, but common to all bicycles are the goals of; providing
necessary leverage to steer the bicycle and generate power; providing a
comfortable ride by damping road vibration; and providing a mount point for the
brakes and gear levers.

Racing/touring and triathlon bars have additional
goals; enabling the rider to assume an aerodynamic position; enabling the rider
to alter body positions during long rides, preventing fatigue; and enabling
aerodynamic routing of brake/gear cables.

Mountain bike handlebars
usually are flat, though most handlebars today are the upward-sweeping ‘risers'
that provide a more upright position, and these handlebars are usually much
wider than other types of bike.

Drop bars are available in a variety of
widths from 34 cm to 50 cm. Normally a rider will pick a bar that approximately
matches their shoulder width so that their arms can be approximately parallel.
The width is measured at the end of the drop section but the exact method
differs from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Some measure from outside edge
to outside edge, whereas others measure from centre to centre. The figure
returned by measuring outside to outside is commonly 2 cm greater than measuring
centre to centre for the same handlebar.

For extra leverage, release of
fatigue, and Cheap

overall better cycling performance, you can
get some bicycle handlebar extensions. These connect to the top of the handlebar
handles, and when you put your hands on them while riding, you can sit up
straighter to ease tension and fatigue, or can crouch down further to go faster.
Either option depends on the angle that the handlebar extensions are
placed.

Here, we have a large choice of bike handlebars types, and there
is also all the extras like handlebar tape, grips, and extensions. All you've
got to do is put in what you're after, and a choice of products and prices will
be shown, then follow the link to the manufacturers website once you see the
options come up on screen.
