I'd been searching for just the right bar to decrease the pain
in my wrist and elbows after an intense ride. The current crop of alternative
bars just did not seem to do it for me...too much sweep, not enought rise, too
Let me introduce to you the Luv Handle...built of 3/2.5 Haynes Titanium. The bar sports a gentle 4 degree rise
and a 21.5 degree back sweep, meeting the natural anatomic position of your
wrist and hands to allow for reduced stress on the supportive structures
resulting in all day comfort and control. The design allows you to use your
current stem and the grip section is long enough to mate with any combination of
shifters and brake levers...just slide them on and hit the dirt.
Hardcore enough to ride rigid or just want some bling factor, the Ti Luv is
for you. The bar offers the same design as the steel model, but offers more
compliance for trail shock absorbption and fatigue resistance without
sacrificing strength or feeling like a wet noodle. The bars come in at 275
grams and are available in a glass bead, ceramic, or painted finish.

Rise - 4 degrees or 1.0"
Sweep - 21.5 degree
Clamp diameter - 25.4

Please stay away from cheap Chinese stems with sharp edges. A good quality Thomson is a happy stem that will keep your bar flexing for years. Tighten faceplate bolts no more than 5.5Nm using an appropriate torque wrench. Have fun and be safe!
