This massively strong chromoly bar with welded brace gives loads of width and height from its seven-degree upsweep. It's a heavy bar, with no forgiveness in stiffness making it a true hooligan bar. The white powder finish can chip, but if you crash hard enough to bend this bar, it'll be the least of your worries. Shims are supplied to upsize from BMX 22.2mm to standard 25.4mm MTB. Lighter unbraced and alloy versions are also available. DMR's well proven Headstock block has loads of external machining for a clean look.

The dropped clamp means zero rise or lower with shims to take 22.2mm BMX bar or 25.4mm MTB bars. There's a dedicated OS version too. The internal wedge stem locking design is knee friendly but locking must be equally tight each side or they might creak.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
