H-Bar® Jones Loop Aluminum 710

The Loop Aluminium 710mm H-Bar is our most popular H-Bar.  If you're new to the H-Bar, this is the model that we tend to recommend first because its loop design has the widest range of hand positions, its aluminium construction gives the best value, and its 710mm width not only gives you the full range of positions, but allows you to cut it down to the original 660mm width (using the laser-etched cut guides) if you decide that you want something narrower. 

The cross bar on the Loop H-Bar sweeps forward to allow the levers to go behind the cross bar instead of in front. This gives longer uninterrupted hand positions and will allow trigger and grip/twist shifters to fit on the rearward extensions (unlike the original H-bar). The continuous front loop of the bar enhances stiffness and is good for additional aero hand positions and mounting lights, GPS devices etc. This bar provides comfort and power with an impressive weight. With the levers in the optimum position you get a wide range of hand and body positions, from fully upright at the ends of the grips, to a tucked aero position when resting your forearms across the crossbar and loop.  In between these extremes, there are many unique and useful positions, making this a true multi-position bar because you'll actually find yourself using all of the positions! The rearward extensions allow extra leverage and a wider hand position - be it for comfort or power. All H-bars are for a 31.8 stem and the crossbar is now tapered and butted with a 31.8 mm clamp area. The grip tubes on the aluminum version are also butted for strength and weight savings.  All H-Bars have a standard 22.2mm diameter grip area.

Try wrapping the crossbar with bartape!  You can wrap both the crossbar and loop (but it helps to leave a gap in the center of the loop to mount whatever gadgets you have), if you want to have the most hand positions!

A common question about the Loop H-bars is whether they work with barend shifters.  The short answer is yes, but we don't like to put them in the ends of the bars for a couple of reasons: especially on the wider 710 H-bars, putting the shifters in the ends of the bars it puts them in a position where they are likely to hit parked cars or trees, as well as moving them farther from the other controls and the main hand positions.  Finally, the grips would need to be modified significantly to accept the cable housing, or the bars would need to be wrapped with bartape, which won't give you quite as much padding as the ESI grips that we have made for the bars.  When we use barend shifters, we mount them on the Paul Thumbies, which have hinged clamps that allow you to mount the shifters in front of the crossbar.  They work great!

    H Bar Jones Loop 710

    This bar is the most comfortable I have tried. It gives me the best control. I wouldn't ride with anything else.

    The H-Bar is meeting all of my expectations and then some. They arrived on time and without wasteful packaging. The installation was easy and my rides since have felt more natural and relaxed. I am enjoying longer rides because I am more comfortable. I thought I would just use this for bike-packing but the H-BAR is staying put! The welds are perfect the the design is beautiful and the ergonomics is spot on.

    Jones 710 H-bar

    Posted by Ingrid D'Angelo on 10th Dec 2017

    I’m a 72 year old male rider. In the early 80’s, I purchased a Austro Daimler road bike and have been riding it ever since. It's been a great bike but the traditional drop bars were no longer comfortable after riding 25 or so miles. Hand numbness, neck strain and poor riding position have taken their toll on my body.

    I recently installed the Jones H bar on my old cruiser and the change has been nothing short of remarkable. I’ve only ridden a few miles so far (I live in a northern state) but the enhanced comfort is clearly obvious. The riding issues with my old drop bars are a thing of the past. The H bar’s upright riding position and variable hand grips allows more time to ride easy and enjoy the experience. I’ll soon be going to a warmer, bike friendly part of the country and can’t wait to get some serious riding in. The H-bar upgrade is like having a new bike.

    My wife has had 3 disked removed from her back and after riding 1000's of miles on a Trek Madone she was ready to give up cycling. The Jones Loop 710 seemed like a good alternative to get her in an up right position. We went for a 20 mile test ride and she was so happy in the new position she now has renewed her interest in riding . At this point in her life comfort is all that matters and now when we do ride together
    she is much happier and in a lot less pain. Thanks you guy!

    H-Bar Jones Loop Aluminium 710

    I am from South Africa and live in the mountain biking mecca Stellenbosch near Cape Town. We will be hosting a world cup cross country event in 2018. Most of our cycling is technical single track going either up or down with not much flat riding. So it was with a bit of trepidation that I fitted the H-Bar to my Cannondal Lefty Scalpel. Having ridden 8 Absa Cape Epic multi-day cycling events I suffer from dead hands relatively quickly. I have been blown away by the H-Bar, not only has it helped my hands but the handling on the technical rides has been awesome. I strongly recommend these bars to anyone who is looking for more comfort without compromising any control.

    H bars vs drops on 520

    Posted by John on 10th Nov 2017

    The h bar went on a trek 520 and I was able to use the factory stem that came with the bike. The reach seems perfect still. The barend shifters went on paul thumbies and I used long pull tektro brake levers for my linear pull v brakes. My favorite thing about the bars so far is I feel much more in control of the bike, with drop bars I felt very shaky. In my late 50s I never got "in the drops " anyway. Used these bars all week for commuter duty on city streets that are like singletrack and 20 miles today on gravel and pavement. My prognosis is that Jones has a great product here. Only issue is I got a bit sloppy with the super 77 glue and got some on my jones grips that I also really like. You have to work fast with that glue.
