Through use of a Joseph Kuosac mid-rise handle bar for Brompton and an H-Bar stem, a much wider bar is possible on the Brompton. Standard H and M Brompton handlebars are 20″ wide, the “Wide-Bar” Brompton sports a 23″ wide handlebar.
The wider bar has the immediate effect of providing more leverage resulting in greater steering accuracy and control. It opens up the chest promoting easier breathing. By positioning your weight closer to the bar, it provides more stability and reduces fatigue on longer rides. Finally, it gives you the sense of riding a much larger bike and just feels more comfortable.
The lower rise puts the bar height at 41″ above grade; 1″ lower than and H-Bar, 1″ taller than an M-Bar.
The use of the Joseph Kuosac handlebar does not affect the fold, the Brompton’s compactness, or it’s ability to fit in a B&W hard case.
Any Brompton H-Bar can be converted to the “Wide-Bar” configuration – call the shop to inquire.
