8 point handlebars

Uncategorized 6 27

I had a track bike with bullhorn bars for a while, but I have never seen handlebars quite like these. Nadejda spotted this bike, designed by Jenny Nordberg, which features antler handlebars. I am not really sure if this bike is intended to be ridden, or if it is supposed to be more of an art piece. What I do know is that I wouldn’t want to ride it in woods during hunting season.

    Boo. I was really, really hoping for a real, practical multi-position bar.

    Bullhorns are great, but for city riding, I’d really like a third position that puts me in a forward, semi-aero position that drops and aero bars don’t satisfy. Butterfly bars aren’t the ticket, and it’s impossible to find the Scott AT-4 in any condition at any price.

    ……or when Dick Cheaney is around. Very cool set of antlers, hopefully no Moose were harmed in the making of those new bars.

    Sorry to get your hopes up Champs. Were those the Scott MTB bars that closed in the front with the same plastic bridge piece from the old Lemond aero bars? Those were fairly short lived. Wouldn’t aerobars on a set of bullhorns or flat bars with barends do the trick?

    Phil, too funny. Cheney’s aim is apparently not very good though, so I wouldn’t worry about him as much.

    The bike is wooden? Wow.

    The antlers were taken from roadkill. Resourceful.
