I like big bars, I can not lie…

23 11 2009

I had such big plans for this post’s headline yet all I can come up with is a weak Sir Mix-A-Lot reference.

My apologies and I will try harder next time.

S&M bikes is another company that has come to the rescue for riders that, like me, have wondered are my handlebars big enough?

News broke a couple of days ago that they were doing a limited run of 29″ wide cruiser bars.  That’s all the info I have right now. I can’t find any details on the S&M Bikes site, so you might want to give them a call or email if you’re interested.

Check ’em out in the picture below (…and yes, I’m as freaked out by his expression as you are).

What was behind this limited run of wide bars? I’d like to think it came to Chris Moeller when he was at the trails.

Perhaps mid-jump he yelled to his trusted assistant nearby, “I need cruiser bars this big” …and then stretched out a no-hander to demonstrate.*

* of course, this is all speculation on my part.

The news was posted on their facebook page…but didn’t include any details on availability, cost or how to order them.

I think a lot of people would be interested in them…kind of like the cruiser version of the Grand Slam bars.
