S&M Bruiser bars: bigger is better

6 05 2014

Could this be a sign that the sub-6″ cruiser bar is finally on its way out?

I have harped on the topic of traditional cruiser bars before…that they are just too small/short…but if you visit just about any race track, they are still being used by many folks (albeit usually with a topload stem and a whack of spacers).

But maybe that’s changing.

S&M just announced their new Bruiser Bar: 6.5″ tall and 29″ wide.  Available in black, white and chrome.

Bruiser bars sandm bikesGranted, if you’re rolling on a new school freestyle 24, you wouldn’t consider this a big bar (higher BBs and taller bars are the standard M.O. there) but for the race community this is a big step up…a lot of race completes still come with 5″ bars.

Hopefully, this will start a bit of a movement in the race community toward bigger bars.

Nice work S&M.
