Major Taylor Bar

  • Functional and classic

    “Picked up these handlebars for a fixed gear conversion I was working on a few years back. They have a low drop, and thus take some getting used to. But once you get familiar with the design, these bars are really great -- keep you in a low stance and allow you to really leverage the bike when starting out or when cranking up a hill.

    Pros: Great functional design for fast, fun track riding. They also look really cool and give any bike a nice, classic feel.

    Cons: Not great for long rides. Also the design can make the use of a cross brake lever difficult. If you're intending on using a cross lever, I'd recommend getting at least the 44cm bars.”

  • Old style track bars

    “Great looking bars, looks just like you would think vintage bars would look like. No problems getting the stem on. Limited space for hands when riding on the tops of the bars, but good position when riding in the drops. A little on the heavy side.”
