 Jeff hears from a lot of riders who need to get their bars higher, and while his framesets make that easy, many riders are installing H-Bars on other brands of bikes with a normal, lower stack height in order to get more comfort and control.  For them, and everyone else who wants to get their bars higher, we have the new SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bar!  Think of the 2.5 as an alternative to a 2" stack of headset spacers combined with a standard H-Bar, which has .5" of rise.  

Also a great bar on a Jones Bike for the rider who wants maximum handlebar height!

This H-Bar is essentially an SG Loop H-Bar with 2.5" of rise compared to the standard .5" of rise on all of the other H-Bars.  Do you have a bike with a short head tube?  Your back and neck want this bar!  Are you wondering if it's safe to install a steerer tube extender on a steerer tube extender?  Get this H-Bar and you won't need to find out!

The SG 2.5 Loop H-Bar shares the same comfortable 45 degree sweep, black or silver colors options, 660mm or 710mm widths, 31.8mm clamp diameter, and standard 22.2mm grip area diameter for flat bar/mountain bike controls with the rest of the Aluminum H-Bars.  The main differences that you'll notice when riding the SG 2.5 vs the standard SG Aluminum Loop H-Bar is that the 2.5 is 2 inches higher—which makes it ideal for bikes with front ends that are too low—and that the rear crossbar swoops down to the stem, rather than curving mostly back as on the rest of the H-Bars.  We hope that this newest H-Bar will help more riders get more comfortable on their bikes!

We get a lot of questions about whether this H-Bar will work with our Loophole H-Bar Pack, and the answer is yes!  The pack fits less tightly, and will be tilted on this H-Bar, but from our experience, it works just fine.

The SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bar weighs approximately 25 grams more than the SG Aluminum Loop H-Bar, so it's actually a very light-weight way to get a much higher stack—especially when compared to a steerer tube extender or even a longer steerer tube and extra spacers.


660mm 2.5 SG Aluminum Loop H-Bar: 635 grams

710 2.5 SG Aluminum Loop H-Bar: 650 grams


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.


The SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bars pass the same stringent EN Mountain Bike Standards as all of our other H-Bars.

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!

We highly recommend checking out our selection of longer grips and bar tape specifically designed for the 710mm and 660mm H-Bars.  Using longer grips is KEY to getting the full range of positions, and therefore comfort, that the H-Bars are capable of delivering!

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.

    2.5 H bar

    Posted by Justin Selby on 20th Aug 2018

    Love these bars! My first ride with the bars was a 50 mile ride. My hands didn’t fall asleep or have any real pain that I get with regular bars. I did get a shorter stem after the my first ride. The reach was to far and I couldn’t use all the hand positions. I replaced the stem with a shorter one and I’m looking forward to getting another long ride in with the new setup. I did take a short ride after changing the stem and was able to reach all the hand positions comfortably.

    Jones SG 2.5 aluminum loop H bar

    Bought these because of a back problem. After riding off road with regular handle bars my back would really hurt between my shoulder blades. After putting the Jones bars on I don't have that problem. You can't image how comfortable they are till you try them.

    Jones SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bar

    Just installed the new handlebars and took my first ride. It does what I hoped for, sit-up higher and don't have to reach as far. I think I'll like them. I did have to replace the front brake cable, the original would reach.

    Easy to replace existing bars!!!

    Posted by Stewart on 6th Aug 2018

    After injuring my neck and right shoulder trail riding I had to do something different. These bars are going to be a game changer. Still in physical therapy and unable to ride very far having the multiple hand positions makes a big difference. The 2.5 loop h-bar raised bar height 2 inches so my back is straight when riding on level easy rides or uphill able to pull up and crank harder. Again its the multiple hand positions making the difference. Also bought the EVA Foam grips and bar tape to wrap inside bar.
