Mary Bars - Those Odd Sweepy Things - Back In Stock

Postby honeymonster on Sun 10/Sep/06 9:01pm

Hey everyone. I have a box of On-One Mary bars sitting here ready to go.
Here's the blurb...

Mary is an extreme sweep (40 degree) riser bar.
She offers loads of control and comfy hand positions. Wide and rear for descents, narrow and forward for climbing and roadie stuff. And in-between isn't too far from a regular riser bar position - but with a much more natural backsweep.
Great for fixie, singlespeed or geared...

I highly rate these, My wrists no longer sound like concrete mixers after a long epic ride on my Single speed :thumbsup:

Mine too...
12 hours on normal riser bars - couldn't hold the bars for pain in my (previously broken) wrist for the last 2 hours.
24 hours on Marys - ahhhhhh, bliss.

Carbon - no, not that I know of.
Brant at On-One spent a fortune getting the aluminium dies made up for these. I think he'll be leaving it at that for the forseeable future while he recoups some of the costs! I suspect the market for a carbon version is tiny and wouldn't justify the investment.

Cool, do you need a shorter stem to run them?

I found with mine, they are pretty much the same distace out the front of your bike (where you grip the bars anyway) as a normal set of risers.
However i put a shorter stem on my bike as the 120mm beast i was using was an extreme overkill :blush:

Nope, not in my experience anyway. The centre bit of the grips - the bit you use most of the time - is right where your normal riser bar grip is.

I knew there would be a time when I had to get rid of those 8 year old azonics on my singlespeed....

I'm a recent convert and have found Mary lovely to hold in my hands. Her curves and numbers are perfect. Climbing on Mary is superb, as you get so much more leverage*.

:love:
