All Jones H-Bars use a 31.8mm stem clamp diameter, 22.2mm clamp size for controls (standard mountain bike style).
All my bars are H-bars. H-bar for Handle-Bar. 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.

I was looking for a wider width alt bar, there are not many wide options out there but the JONES bend h-bar is perfect. Get the 710mm width, it has cutting marks to narrow it down if needed.

I ordered the H-bend bars but Loop bars are what showed up in mail. Was planning on sending them back but decided, oh well, they look odd but I will give them a try. So glad I did, with the extra width they give me great leverage for climbing, and the forward hand positions give me extra reach for seated climbs and riding against the wind. Really feels like my single speed 29er just got a couple of extra gears.
I am either getting used to the look or just don't care about that anymore. The Jones bars are really that good.

I had some problems of sensitivity for the small muscles of the two smallest fingers: a mixture of too tight grip with pinching of the tiny muscles. One hour ride meant a few days of ache. The bent H-Bar solved the problem. It handles singletracks quite adequately. It sort of reinforce the feeling on the fat bike of "driving a tractor" or a big four wheeler. Happy with H-bar.

I liked the looks of the H-bar and had heard that the design would position my hands in a way that might alleviate shoulder pain, but was skeptical how it would perform for technical Colorado trail riding.
Then I rented a Jones Plus bike for a three day period from Topenga Creek Outpost in CA while visiting a friend. The bike came with the Jones Bend H-Bar® 710 Aluminium. Not only was I wrong about thier handling along technical lines I had almost zero shoulder pain after all day rides on a "rigid" bike.
I have since equipped all my bikes with Jones Bend H-Bar® 710 Aluminium handle bars. They are worth their weight in gold.

So I've been drinking the fatbike koolaid for some time now. I use a singlespeed Pugsley for year round riding and some endurance racing is in the future. Been looking for something a little more comfortable for longer rides. Tossed and turned between all the usual alt bar choices available. Decided to go with Jones as he has quite a bit of info to back up his products. Ordered my bend bar on the 27th of Dec. got a email 15 minutes later saying it was shipped. F yes that's good service. Got it on the bike and went out for a rip bud. Super happy with the choice. It is exactly what I was after and expected. Thanks Jeff! Probably just gonna have to order one of your frames now.
