I am building a rigid singlespeed right now. I am currently running a WIDE riser bar. It is 28" wide and I love it. I am looking to move to a flat bar and would like to get something just as wide or wider. I would also prefer a silver handlebar. One of the few I have found that fits this bill is the Echo Urban Bulge bar.
I know some guys are running this bar off-road and some say it is okay. Others say that a trials bar on a trail bike is not a good idea. I would like to get the input of the group here. Please provide me with your opinions. Thanks in advance for your input. I would prefer to not start a flame war here, so please keep your answers to the point and avoid personal attacks. Thanks.
Yep, no issue. DHers started using them a couple of years back. Now there are a few dedicated DH flat bars that are also wide. Only issue I could see is that they might feel a bit stiff if you are accustomed to the flex in your current bars.
