I finally made it. 780mm wide, flat plane, 27.5° sweep, oodles and oodles of hand grip length, 101.6mm (4") wide section at the stem with the 31.8mm diameter (for bike packing attachments per customer spec), I can freaking stomp on them, they survive stem clamping well beyond 5Nm, mass is 235g.

I've shipped bars before for testing / feedback purposes, but this is the first time for money.

I'm exhausted. Now to do this routinely.

Time to bang out a few more bars -- including some non-planar bars with rather complex curvature -- and then it is on to making forks.

I thought I would be elated to reach this point -- it's more like a sense of relief. I have some (modest, by today's standards) debts to pay.

Great work, those look nice! What is the price on those beauties? Is your email the best route for ordering?
Thanks! Email is generally the first thing I check on a given day, so that's a "yes" to email. You can also text or call 651 424-8555 -- please don't be offended if I'm unresponsive on the phone during daylight hours.

It seems to me I need to work on my paint game. I added some clear coat and it is... ehhhh... not bad, not great. I'll learn that next. If I had to guess, surface cleanliness needed to be 100% pre-application and I had it at like 96% or whatever that is not 100%.
