All my bars are H-bars. H-bar for Handle-Bar. All have a 31.8mm clamp diameter. They have the 45 degrees of sweep, the 0.5" vertical offset, and a multitude of hand-positions. But could I offer more, with less? Yes. Back to basics, back to the beginning, with a twist. Well, with a bend....the Bend H-Bar. The original concept, the 45 degrees of sweep but with the bend, where it is, ensures shifters and levers are a simple fit and the one piece butted aluminium construction delivers a bar 170g lighter than a Loop. Less hand position options, less stuff-mounting space, marginally less stiff but all you might ever need in an H-Bar. No more, no less. The Jones Bend H-Bar.
The bikes I ride for long distances or at night have the Loop H-Bars so I have more hand positions and mounting points. The Bend H-Bar is nice for bikes that don't need things attached to the front of the bar (light, GPS, etc.) or an aero position. I am using the Bend H-Bar on my single-track day riding bikes and it's great.
For setup tips, check out the H-Bar Manual!

The 45 degree bend is comfortable and ergonomic feeling.

A supremely comfortable and useable bar. The sweep back allows for a comfortable upright position yet you can reach forward and hold the front bends to pull hard. Both positions are very effective and comfortable, that word again.
If only it were available in 25.4 too for those of us who still have bikes with quill stems. I would have this bar on every bike I own if so!

This is the bar I've been looking for. Upgrade for my 2014 Fargo2. New shifters,break levers and the H bar. Most fun I've had biking in years. I also have a loop H. With esi grips. Totally rocks. Much greater control than the wood chopper bars for single track.
