The new Jones SG Loop H-Bar uses the same great design as our standard Loop H-Bar, but is available at a lower price by using straight-gauge aluminum tubing in place of the custom-butted tubing on the standard Loop H-Bar.  Jeff wanted to make a Loop H-Bar that would allow more riders to experience the superior comfort, control, and utility of his Loop design without making it any less dependable and useful.  He accomplished this by switching to less-expensive straight-gauge aluminum tubing.  The result is an H-Bar that is just as strong as ever, but which weighs 100g more than the standard version and costs $40 less.

Colors

Black or Silver:

Black is bead-blasted and black anodized for a shiny, lightly-textured finish.

Silver is bead-blasted and clear anodized for a shiny, but not polished, lightly-textured finish.

All Jones H-Bars use a 31.8mm stem clamp diameter, 22.2mm clamp size for controls (standard mountain bike style).  The entire front loop has a 22.2mm diameter.

The Loop H-Bar has the same hand, stem and brake lever position as the original H-Bar but the cross 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 and the Cut 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 the rider is superbly placed for fast riding while still enjoying all the hand positions available. 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. 

Refer to the H-Bar Manual for set-up tips!

Also we highly recommend checking out our selection of grips and bar tape specifically designed for the 710mm and 660mm H-Bars.

Great for; Singlespeeds, 29ers, Fat Bikes, Touring, Bike-packing Adventures, City Riding and more!
Compatible with; Singlespeeds, Trigger shifters, Gripshift, Shimano twist shifters, Rohloff and above the bar hinged thumb-shifters.

    H Loop handlebars

    Posted by Terry on 23rd Jul 2018

    I am somewhat of a newbie to biking but live in an area where there are tons of paved and off road trails to ride. I chose a hybrid mountain bike so I could take advantage of the paved, gravel and dirt trails in my area. The flat bars that came with my Fuji Traverse 1.1 caused a lot of discomfort and numbness in my hands and fingers. I tried using a variable angle stem to raise the height which helped but did not eliminate the problem. After a lot of looking on the net and talking to bike stores I found your loop bars and knew it would be my best solution. I have been riding with the bars now for a few hundred miles and find the angle, ergonomics and multiple hand positions have all but eliminated my hand discomfort. Great bars and even the bike techs at the local bike shops either have these bars or are going to get a set themselves......great design.

    So far so good!

    I put the bars on and wrapped them. I like how they look. More importantly, I like the multiple hand positions as compared to my flat bars. Hill climbing is easier as well. Seems like a great product for the value. They perform as advertised.

    SG LOOP BARS & grips

    Posted by Bill ulrich on 30th Jun 2018

    I have had this bars for a month now, wanted to put some miles on them before I reviewed them. They are working out great, with all the different riding positions I enjoy riding longer distances now. I find that my hands don’t fall asleep as much and wake up faster as with the straight bars that where on the bike before. All in all I’m very happy that I got them. Installing them was a very easy process, I found that putting the bars on the bike First then putting the shifters and brake levers on second and then the grips worked out great. I would recommend them to anyone and did to one of my friends and he bought the 2 1/2 “ lift ones, he is very happy with them also. Great product !!!!!

    More than expected

    Posted by Brian on 18th Jun 2018

    Recently bought the Jones H Loop ($79). I have had the bar for a week and have ridden 100 miles on it of singletrack, paved roads, and gravel/limestone trails. I had hand positioning for everyone. Also, the bar positioning and sweep made riding the rocky/rooty PA Singletrack a lot of fun.

    I put this on a 2016 Kona Mahuna frame as a bike rebuild I am doing for more of a gravel/longer miles grinder. I ride a Kona Big Honzo DL for a mountain bike and so having a bike for some longer miles and trips, but could still handle everything was something I was looking to have.

    The availability and diversity of hand positions is probably the first thing I noticed, in addition to how comfortable my hands were. Being my geometry is definitely more over (threw on a steel rigid fork that wasn't enough on the suspension corrected side), it is important to have some soft/chunky grips to take the pressure off. I also taped the "loop".

    For anyone who is over their current bars (drop bars, flat bars, etc.) and looking for a handlebar that can also be used in varying trail conditions with multiple hand positions, this is your bar.

    Handlebars, just what I wanted

    Posted by David on 17th Jun 2018

    These bars installed easy and we're just what I was looking for in the height and width span.

    Looking forward to the trip

    Posted by Graham on 12th Jun 2018

    At first I was a little apprehensive about whether or not these were going to work out, but now that I've spent some time on them (almost 1,000 miles now) I can say that they are starting to grow on me. Just having a few more places to move my hands to on the rides is really helping. Plus I noticed when climbing the other day that I get a little extra leverage when pulling up on the bars on my downstroke.

    Awesome sauce

    Posted by Dustin on 22nd May 2018

    Great bars, very comfortable with many hand positions and they don't look dorky like Trekking bars do. The price was good for the product you get. Very happy with my buy. The fellas on the bikepacking trails will be jelly.
