And as a fan of bigger/taller bars, it warms my heart to see bike companies offering, more and more, taller options.
The sub-6″ bar was the standard on race cruisers for far too long (see Traditional cruiser bars: who needs ’em?)
And while some race purists will argue that lower bars are necessary, our in-field testing with Matty Jo Shelley showed that bigger bars offered advantages to the race gang too.
All that is just prelude to me saying that I’m stoked to see DK is now offering a taller aftermarket race bar for the cruiser rider.
The DK Six Six handlebar are a 6.6″ race bar with minimal sweep.
Available in chrome or black, they are 100% 4130 Multi-butted (11 count) Chromoly with a knurled clamp area. They also feature a hourglass-tapered crossbar.
The rest of the specs:
- 2° upsweep and 7° backsweep
- 762 g. weight
(And for those riding a new school/freestyle 24″, there is also a 8.6″ version available as well.)
